Wild Pink Share New Track “Ohio” Feat. Samia
Announce New EP 3 Songs
Out June 25th via Royal Mountain Records
Share KEXP Live At Home Session
Hot on the heels of releasing one of the years most critically revered albums in A Billion Little Lights back in February, Wild Pink are now sharing their new single, “Ohio“. Teaming up with Samia, it is the first track from the band’s new EP 3 Songs, out June 25th on Royal Mountain Records, and follows last month’s 6 Cover Songs.
Ohio is such a beautiful composition. This rich yet organic texture found in the immersive structure pulls you in before the ethereal vocal collaboration becomes the emotional catalyst for this stirring ensemble. The hypnotising motion draws your attention and keeps it fixated on the soft and serene rhythm. There’s a real natural essence emitting from this creation, we find ourselves calm and at peace whilst the innovative arrangement surrounds us.
Lush and expansive, Samia’s and Wild Pink vocalist John Ross’ intertwining vocals sit atop a stirring and beautiful sonic backdrop as Ross ruminates on the small moments of calm and glimpses of peace that occur when you take a second to breathe. On the track, Ross explains: “This song is about feeling isolated but then the relief that comes from seeing family/friends. It’s about getting some comfort from some of the mundane things I took for granted growing up, like daily summer storms and the hum from an oscillating fan at night. I wrote a lot of it during soundchecks on a tour with Adam Torres in 2018.“
A Billion Little Lights was released back in February to widespread acclaim, with Stereogum declaring it as “one of the most exquisitely pretty rock albums in recent memory” while Ny Mag/Vulture declared it “2021’s best rock album,” alongside praise from outlets like NPR, New York Magazine, Pitchfork, The AV Club, Uproxx, Paste, MTV, FADER, Consequence, BrooklynVegan and many more. The follow up 6 Cover Songs saw admiration from both Billboard and the r/indieheads community, as well as landing Ross a KEXP Live At Home Session, which is out now to coincide with the release of “Ohio”.
Wild Pink’s 3 Songs is out on June 25th via Royal Mountain Records. It is available here.
