Wonderlust is yet another tip-top, straight-up piece of dreamy indie-rock from Kid Wave, following on from their last release, The Gloom EP, in November last year. Simple but oh so very effective, it hits hard from the first note and doesn’t let up: the song’s gorgeous fuzzy guitars are matched by the sunny harmonies to Lea Emmery’s vocal and a guitar solo that almost steps aside to let the rising bass through before the outro.
