We’re excited to share the new Rewilding single and music video ‘High Desert’, taken from the forthcoming self-titled debut album (17/10/17). Rewilding is the solo project of New Jersey-based musician and producer Jake McFee (Connected View). Check out the video on YouTube and stream the single at SoundCloud.
Teeming with disorienting organic details and often taking surreal detours, Rewilding possesses a rare, meandering beauty. While the album’s precedents are clear – Fridge, Pram, Broadcast – the personality and texture of these instrumental miniatures is unique and disarming. Instrumental pop is rarely so approachable and beguiling. With each track seemingly inspired by a specific environment, creature or atmosphere, there’s a natural, evocative ecology at work in the album as a whole. From the dry expanses of single ‘High Desert’ via the warbling analogue tones of ‘Under Water Footage’ through to the melancholic slow-motion motorik of ‘Lonesome Briar Patch’, this instrumental journey is a deeply felt ride.
