Austin-based Indie Pop ensemble Wild Child have shared new single “Photographs.” The song marks the return of the band after their 2018 full length Expectations, but also the return of the writing duo of Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins.
‘Photographs’ is one of the first songs we wrote after a couple years of not writing together. It has a familiar presence to songs we wrote when we were starting out but with a chiseled maturity.
Wilson and Beggins will also hit the road for a series of acoustic shows with special guest John Calvin Abney in December, including a run of appearances in Texas that will feature a string quartet.
The group’s core duo of Wilson and Beggins wrote and released their first album, Pillow Talk (2011). Since then they’ve released three additional albums, The Runaround (2013), Fools (2015), and Expectations (2018), which saw the band welcome other artists like Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie), Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog), Matthew Logan Vasquez (Delta Spirit), and Max Frost into the fold. Along the way, Wild Child has become a substantial live act, as seen during their episode of Austin City Limits.
