Within a few short months covering the tail end of 2014 and the start of 2015, Wildling went from making their first live performance to headline slots to appearing at SXSW showcases. Next thing, they’re recording a debut EP in Bob Clearmountain’s Apogee recording studio. A lot of thought, dedication and hard work had led Wildling to this place: where they go from here is as yet unknown.
That debut EP will be released in October. Ahead of it the first step on the rest of the band’s journey comes in the form of a cover of a Neil Young classic. A brave choice: Neil Young covers are not hard to find, neither these days are slowed, stripped back reboots of past glories. Wildling nail it.
