Wild Leaves are five friends who moved from the midwest to Brooklyn, together. That distance is reflected in their songs. Their sound is something nostalgic, something with history–like a record rediscovered in your attic. The soaring harmonies, assertive rhythm section, and shimmering electric guitars have drawn comparisons to the west coast sounds of The Byrds, CSNY, & Jefferson Airplane. Yet, there is something still distinctly relevant to today–like the sound of a memory not yet lost.
After releasing “Wind & Rain” in March 2013, the band established themselves at the forefront of the New York folk scene. Their powerful live performances earned them showcases at CMJ and Midpoint Music Festival as well as a series of tours up and down the east coast.
“Hello Sunlight” is the newest release from Brooklyn Psych-Folk band, Wild Leaves. This collection of four songs is a follow-up to last year’s debut, “Wind & Rain,” an EP described as ”Illustrious (Obscure Sound)” and “wonderfully mellow and beautifully harmonized (Vivid Lagoon)”. Here, the band’s characteristic sun-drenched harmonies and kaleidoscopic guitar lines take center stage, ringing out with a sense of urgency that reverberates across the American landscape.
Recorded live to tape over three days at Saltlands Studio in Brooklyn, New York, the album was Engineered and mixed by Robert Mallory (Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon) and mastered by Matthew Agoglia (Spoon, Wavves).
