Wild Nothing Return with "Partners In Motion"

Jack Tatum's Wild Nothing project has the distinction of creating the type of record that, when put on, company will either ask immediately what it is, or get a "These guys have always been pretty good, huh?" response. Wild Nothing fits a niche, but that entire space is unshared, taken up entirely by the spacious production that brims the genre. The latest single, "Partners In Motion" is a little more upfront than Wild Nothing releases of the past. Earlier records have a certain timid and coy approach to songwriting and production, whereas the new song is bold, sounding more like a Godley and Creme song from the late eighties. Wild Nothing has got some nerve now, and that means their peers could be squeezed out of the zeitgeist, if Tatum wasn't so peerless to begin with.
