One of our most anticipated releases of the year, Wild Pink’s “ILYSM” is finally out! The album has seen praise from outlets like The New York TimesPitchfork, The FADER, and was named Album of The Week by Stereogum who say “it doesn’t do this album justice to merely call it a ‘level up.’ Paste Magazine described it as “one of the most surprising and satisfying musical moments of the year, the kind of thing you have to hear to believe.”

The fourth full-length from Wild Pink, “ILYSM” unfolds with all the fractured beauty of a dreamscape. Over the course of 12 chameleonic tracks, the New York-bred rock band build another world inhabited by ghosts and angels and aliens, inciting a strange and lovely daze as the backdrop shifts from the mundane (subdivisions, highways, hotel parking lots) to the extraordinary (deserts, battlefields, the moon).

But within its vast imagination lies a potent truth-telling on the part of singer / guitarist John Ross, whose lyrics closely examine his recent struggle with cancer. The follow-up to 2021’s “A Billion Little Lights” — a critically acclaimed effort praised by the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, Vulture, and Stereogum, who named it “one of the prettiest rock records of the past decade”—”ILYSM” emerges as a truly revelatory body of work, transforming the most painful reflection into moments of transcendence.
