This is one of those great songs that rolls along effortlessly, blending country, folk and ragged college rock sounds. You can hear Wilco cosying up with Pavement and a cosmic Americana vibe as the perfectly jangly/dirty guitars swing and sway on a warm bed of distortion. There’s also a power pop element, particularly in the vocal melodies, that hints at some Big Star fandom.
Wonders of the Yukon are a duo that hail from Northern England. Andy Campbell and Dave Langdale write, play and record and mix everything on this track. They look to have released an EP and a handful of singles over the last few years.
As the pair say in their press… “Fear and loathing in West Yorkshire”.
