A vision of beauty is being communicated from XYV. Wildwood, the first EP from the Midwestern musician, contains three lush works exploring the intersection of electronic aesthetics and indie rock sensibilities. The title track gives a glimpse into the future of postmodern pop with a chorus of synthesized vocals while "Years Tonight" slows things down through its mix of piano balladry and stuttered 808s. "In Transit" concludes the three-song journey with a cinematic soundscape and an extended live outro deconstructing the composition to its most essential components. Wildwood is a fully realized work by one of the most uncompromising new entities in independent music.
