Electric Fetus

Indie trio Wild Rivers (Khalid Yassein, Devan Glover, and Andrew Oliver) have a gift for penning introspective lyrics and genre-fluid melodies that transmit wisdom beyond their years. Their anticipated full-length album, Sidelines-co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers and recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles and Khalid and Devan's college town of Kingston, Ontario (where the two originally met and began making music together)-touches on coming-of-age themes and embracing the unknown. A portrait of their early post-college years, Sidelines is where Wild Rivers poured their collective impressions about merging into their mid-20s - a strange, liminal age where it's easy to romanticize childhood. Sidelines, according to Andrew, looks back longingly upon "the time when you are truly present and you're not having this forward-thinking vision where you're worried about the next thing. ""A lot of [Sidelines] is about perspective and longing to be somewhere that you're not, or trying to figure out how to get to a place that you want to be, whether it's physically, emotionally," says Devan. "I think we're all kind of struggling with our sense of identity, in the stage of life that we're in. " Sonically, Wild Rivers pull from a spectrum of sounds, imbuing pop, rock, indie, and folk into each song's blueprint. "We all listen to a wide range of music, from hip-hop to indie rock to pop," Devan says. "We like to pull our favorite parts of every genre and patch them together and see what works and see what feels good.
