Wild Leaves are five friends who moved from the Midwest to Brooklyn. That distance is recalled in the songs. Each one a look back at things left behind, and a reflection on new lives taking root. The band's sound is nostalgic, something with history - like a record rediscovered in your attic. Hazy melodies and spacious reverb recall memories not yet lost.
These songs grew out of the shared experience of being in transition. They speak to trials of distance, growing up, and the re-definition of home. To capture that feeling, the band recorded live to tape in an idyllic cottage in the Upper-Delaware River Valley last October. They arrived just as a major storm made its way across the Eastern Seaboard.
Winds howled through the surrounding forest as rain beat on the tin roof above. The band sought refuge in their songs, tracking to a dusty Reel-to-Reel recorder. The heat from the stove, scent of the wood, and warmth of home cooked meals all made their way onto the tape and contribute to the warmth and intimacy of the EP.
