Wild Ones' debut album was no easy feat. The band struggled through financial and physical issues while putting everything it had into Keep It Safe. The A.V. Club has the exclusive premiere of the video for the single "It's Real." In it, lead singer Danielle Sullivan's initially stoic presence slowly melts into a reflection of the dramatic tension, emotions, and sweatiness of a HEATed NBA playoff game, complete with some LeBron James action. The song itself swells and creates tension, cut by Sullivan's sweet voice.
Keep It Safe is out now on Party Damage Records, and Wild Ones will be playing a few west coast dates this October in addition to Musicfest NW in Portland next month. Those stops are all listed below.
