Wild Pink Share New Single “Q. Degraw”

On Tour This Spring and Summer w/ The Antlers

It’s been over a year since Wild Pink released A Billion Little Lights, their third album album, and the most critically-acclaimed release of their career. Among other high praise, Stereogum called the album “one of the prettiest rock records of the past decade,” while NY Mag/Vulture declared it “the best rock record of 2021,” alongside further praise from outlets like PitchforkNPRBillboardMTVUproxxFADERThe AV Club and many others.

In December Wild Pink shared a single entitled “Florida” which Wild Pink leader John Ross said he thought of as “the period at the end of the A Billion Little Lights sentence,” and now Ross is sharing a track that marks the start of a new chapter for the band, and perhaps a preview of things to come. 

Wild Pink creates this immerse landscape filled with robust tonality and this hypnotic passage intensified by the drum beat maximising the movement. Wild Pink fills this almighty world with this array of affection, nostalgia reflects from the tones and textures and provides this creation that so many will connect to, this creation can be absorbed in all its glory. It’s raw, intimate and angular.

This song is about my experiences with some health problems and how an extremely stressful situation can sharpen your focus on what’s important in life,” says Ross. “It’s also about how that stress can sometimes cause you to dissociate from yourself.”

Wild Pink have also recently announced a series of upcoming tour dates, which will include a headlining run with the full band, and a set of dates in which Ross will perform solo in support of The Antlers. Full details can be found below.

Wild Pink’s “Q. Degraw” is out now via Royal Mountain Records. You can listen here.
