Wild Child’s Texan founding members Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins first met in 2009 while touring with a Danish act called The Migrant. When the two wrote their first song, the chemistry was undeniable. The two rented out an unfurnished home studio in Austin to write and record 2010’s "Pillow Talk." That record was by definition a work in progress. As they built the record, they also built the band. "Pillow Talk" garnered three number-one spots on the indie music trendsetter website Hype Machine and has been streamed over threemillion times on Spotify. The sound on their new album, "The Runaround" isn’t exactly a departure. Wild Child hasn’t lost any of the velvety melodies, storyline drive, or the wry delivery that established them from the start as a band of uncommon character and narrative reach. The infectious hooks and fully-realized sound have so far earned the group national exposure, including a feature segment on "Last Call with Carson Daly" filmed during this year’s SXSW. The band also has the same advantages that we all get from a few more years of living: these songs still reflect on young love, but they’re a little wiser, more at home with the uncomfortable realities of loss and uncertainty, acknowledging in one song that we’re "born to change our minds."
