the long song format?
Earshot cuts straight to our prog-rock heart
Out Of Sound
Wild Domestic’s self-titled EP grabs the listener’s attention from the very first note, and the group’s dynamic sound stays true to the contrast of the band’s name. Songs tend towards seven minutes in length, but this format harkens back to bands such as Yes and Supertramp, and Wild Domestic served the long song format well.
“Universally Known/Already Forgotten” establishes a listening atmosphere sure to please the serious music aficionado. The melodic guitars supported by drums are laid down at the beginning and flow into a full sounding number that melds the numerous instruments together seamlessly.
“What Once Ran Wild” features tribal-sounding drums and melodic vocal harmonies – the latter of which are impressive for a band known for their instrumental prowess. The melodies are a fantastic layer to the track on an EP that features more shouting than vocal melodies.
“In A Well Lit Room,” “Cowboy Boots+Casual Suits” and “Gusty Winds May Exist” all complete the remainder of the EP quite nicely. Wild Domestic takes you on a musical journey that you want to travel with forever.
