Sometimes inevitability dictates the roads we take, leading us to fateful coincidences, Craigslist ads, and a little bit of blind luck. That's exactly how the NJ five-piece Wyland came to be. Today we're premiering the video for "Wait," the latest off of their upcoming You're In The World, Get Off Your Feet EP from the alternative-folk rockers. The video is set in a Mumford-esque establishment, fully stocked with a romantically faulty lighting fixture and plenty of room for a foot stomping audience.
Marrying atmospheric rock with a modern pop sensibility and a traditional strings and piano, Wyland skillfully crafts tunes that show appreciation for both the present and the past. The band are fresh off their stop at the Gentleman of the Road Music Festival, where they appeared alongside Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, and the Vaccines, to name a few. They've opened for Everclear and Taking Back Sunday, and are set to perform the Center of the Universe Festival next month alongside Panic! At the Disco, American Authors, and MisterWives. Check out our video premiere of "Wait" below and a handful of upcoming tour dates for the band:
Black Potato Festival - July 9th
Maxwell's Hoboken - July 18th
Center of the Universe Festival - July 25th
