Introducing: WYATT

wyattA slow handclap and lazy guitar opens WYATT’s latest track “Trouble”. Followed by namesake Maddy Wyatt’s American drawl, at first the licked rock riff is deceiving, as the production hints at the fusion cool of Santigold and Sleigh Bells, but the song soon belts out a chorus fit for new country Kings and Queens Buffalo Clover.

Confused yet? It seem WYATT are content to cross states and genre boundaries. Their base is found smack bang in the centre of New York City, and "Trouble" was recorded in a Brooklyn studio and not on a dusty road to Nashville, but it’s still no surprise their self-titled EP found an audience at SXSW and CMJ last year, well before it rocked their hometown. With critical acclaim from Time Out New York dragging at their heels, it looks like the five-piece are set to crack their local scene this year at least.

Check out “Trouble” below.
