The title track was written and produced first, and came together during one night of the band having a jam session. The song has a very distinct, feel-good, summer vibe that feels carefree. “Wasting Time” was created a few months later while messing around with some lush R&B chords. The track was inspired by their girlfriends and how they’re “too good for them.” “Too Late” started all the way back in 2016. The band was listening through old recordings and ended up giving it a second chance after a complete production overhaul. “All Day ” is a carefree and confident jam about good times and riding high. They wrote and produced this tune in an afternoon of fun hangs with some close homies. The track is perfect for a summer drive by the ocean or a pregame with the squad. This soulful tune will have you singing along in no time.
Wake the Wild is a three-piece band that fuses funky electro with R&B and nu-disco. Now based in Los Angeles, these longtime friends grew up playing together in the Bay Area jazz scene.

About Wake the Wild:
Having met in their middle school jazz band, Wake The Wild grew up performing music together in a variety of styles ranging from funk to R&B. Though they were split across the country throughout college, they reunited in Los Angeles to start Wake The Wild. Their unique sound combines funky live instrumentation with nu-disco, funk & retro dance music. Though the three members have had significant successes as professional songwriters, producers and instrumentalists, Wake the Wild remains the true passion project for these three lifelong friends.
