Wild Ones, Genders, Paper Brain

115 NW 5th Ave.
 
[AM SYNTH-POP] It’s hard to tell Wild Ones is a six-piece. Lilting, dreamy melodies are its forte, but without seeing the group, it would be easy to believe Andrew Bird and St. Vincent had just plugged into the wrong pedal board. It would have to be a diverse pedal board, though. Wild Ones is sometimes acoustic with a touch of reverb, as on “Earthquakes,” and sometimes makes blissful trips down the river, like in “Pacific,” letting audiences know just how faded the Northwestern sun is. Even if the band’s style is a little undefined, its various sounds reach out and rub everyone’s eyes awake and are best served with orange juice. The harmonies are endearing, and the group does have occasional bursts of energy. For Wild Ones, though, they’re fairly tame.
