Things weren’t always so wild for the Wild Ones. On the way to completing their debut album, Keep It Safe, the Portland sextet’s guitarist suffered a blown-out eardrum and their drummer wound up with a punctured lung. Also, they damn near went broke. But you’re not likely to sense that in “From Nothing,” a springy song with only the slightest down-turned corners. The melodic grace of singer Danielle Sullivan is undeniable, while the band’s mix of buoyant synth-pop and familiar indie-rock keeps things moving ever forward. Keep It Safe is out now.
