Wild Nothing Reigns Over His Subjects on ‘Reichpop’
'Life of Pause' is due on February 19
Back in November, Jake Tatum, a.k.a. Wild Nothing, shared news of his third studio album, Life of Pause, plus two singles: “TV Queen” and “To Know You.” Now the Brooklyn dream-pop purveyor has dropped another single, a xylophone and bass-heavy tropical breeze called “Reichpop.”
Skeptics may ask how balmy sonics relate to anything that starts with the German word “Reich,” but a quick Google indicates that the phrase relates to anything regarding empires and kings. So, if it’s Tatum’s wish to be a King of (Indie) Pop, he’s onto something here. Listen below, and look for Life of Pause on February 19 via Captured Tracks.
