With Yolk In The Fur, Wild Pink's much-anticipated follow-up to its eponymous 2017 debut full-length, the three piece again takes its listeners to a place of sonic placidity. Frontman John Ross and his bandmates trade what sparing crunch they did use on the self-titled LP for lush, balmy synths that lift their sound upwards and out, rather than forward and down. Any traces of slowcore and grunge are gone here, replaced by the angelic airiness of Cocteau Twins and Red House Painters, but with the modern crispness of LAKE or Japanese Breakfast. Sporadic splashes of electronic drums and emphasized basslines add fascinating new dimensions to their already-diverse palette, but no instrument or tone ever feels shoehorned in. Each part is stitched seamlessly into the other, and the band's aptitude for unexpected changeups is only heightened with the ability to shift from artificial to natural instrumentation. Although it's both the shortest and most straightforward cut in the tracklist, closer 'All Some Frenchman's Joke' is a satisfying thematic knot for what Ross says is an album about protecting something vulnerable. Letting go of youth after the time is due/feels like relief/like when something stuck is freed, he sings. To call this album a maturation for Wild Pink is to not only recycle a long-frayed cliche, but to neglect the musical and lyrical wiseness they already possessed on their debut. But if Ross really did quell an existential crisis during the making of Yolk In The Fur, and managed to finally scrub the gunk clean, the fresh coat that grew back took form as one of the purest, fleeciest, most lavish rock albums of 2018.

Wild Pink is one of those wonderfully rare bands that sounds instantly familiar, though drawing parallels to influences on its two previous EP has proven incredibly difficult. That sentiment remains on the New York City trio s Self-Titled debut full-length as Wild Pink continues to chart its own unique course, growing impressively expansive in sound and more ambitious in songwriting. Recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Pixies, Speedy Ortiz, Parquet Courts, Thurston Moore), the new LP moves at sublimely deliberate pace while Wild Pink further fleshes out the arrangements. Yet the songs never suffer, only growing more dynamic and propulsive while holding tight to the warm intimacy that has always made the band special. These are deeply personal stories about freedom (or lack thereof), about growing up, leaving youth behind while clinging to the deep-rooted scars that we hold sacred. Wild Pink has a remarkable way of transporting you to those moments in time where the smallest detail remains etched into your being. There is an intoxicating sincerity that echoes throughout the Self-Titled album and speaks to what makes the band so unique.
