Premiere: Wild Ones - "Standing In The Back At Your Show"

Watch Wild Ones' new music video for "Standing In The Back At Your Show."

The wait is over – Portland's Wild Ones drop their infectious pop album Mirror Touch off Topshelf Records today. The record, inspired by the condition "Mirror-Touch synesthesia," explores themes of isolation, loneliness, and the self. In celebration of their latest release, we're excited to share the music video for "Standing In The Back At Your Show." The dreamy track sonically captures the messy, beginning stages of new love when you're simultaneously hyperaware of and intoxicated by every single fleeting interaction. Read about the band's songwriting process below and order the album here.

Danielle Sullivan of Wild Ones on Mirror Touch:

"Mirror Touch considers the boundaries between self and other when creating art. How do you know yourself when there are a thousand voices considering every angle, analyzing every choice? On this record there are love songs, anxious songs, and songs of isolation. My favorite pop songs contain heartache in seductive packaging, like some kind of emotional Trojan horse. This is our version. It took us two years to make and we went through multiple renditions of everything. What you have now is our truest, most honest expression of the last few years. We're happy to share it with you."
