The Lonely Wild bring new music to The Satellite

By pcsanchez7505


The Lonely Wild, an Indie Folk band from Los Angeles, California, will make a stop at The Satellite on Monday, Oct. 26 to play an intimate show. The band has been touring the states following the release of their new album, “Chasing White Light.”

Over the years, the group has toured and played with a variety of musicians including the likes of Damien Rice, The Lone Bellow, Lord Huron, Laura Marling, Phosphorescent, Dwight Yoakam and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

In addition to that, they’ve played a handful of prominent festivals across the United States — the band notes their sound and new album have been influenced by all these eclectic experiences.

A questioning, yet collective album of melodies and striking lyrics, “Chasing White Light” finds itself in the realms of a beautifully pensive piece of work that would feel right at home in a mix tape of other folk bands such as Hey Marseilles, The Tallest Man on Earth and The Head and the Heart.

While this new album very much has the taste of folk music, it’s no pure brew. It mixes in moments of calming sips with hints of excitement paralleled to your first espresso shot after a long night out – these moments are supercharged and come together delightfully like the best dirty chai mix.

The Lonely Wild, as their name would insinuate, have beautiful streams of contradictions in this album – they chase a white light, not so much a reference to cocaine, but rather a long and distant journey coming to terms with death. It’s an album about the inevitable end, yet, reflects on moments in life to come to a sentimental acceptance – we live, we love, we die.

There’s nothing disheartening by the end of this album though, and the white light, or black fade, has been addressed and dealt with in a metaphysical and spiritual way.

Most notably, the band is able to sum up their album in one stirring line found in the sixth track, “Funeral.” – “And I am thankful just to know you, like I know you, and not to know what’s gonna happen.”

The whole album itself is a tasteful sip of nostalgia, beauty and power. We’re given moments and glimmers of life and death that we’re all the better for having been a part of.

The Lonely Wild will share this experience two weeks from this Monday in a free, 21 and over show at The Satellite as part of the Balcony TV residency. Other artists for the night include Pom Poms, Alyeska and Burning Jet Black.

You can buy “Chasing White Light” via the band’s website or through iTunes. For more information about this and their upcoming show, visit The Lonely Wild’s website here.
