“Reichpop” by Wild Nothing – A Song Review

     Wild Nothing has been releasing intriguing music for years, but “Reichpop” stands out. It’s the combination of elements that sets the song apart. The marimba is strong while being featured during the song’s intro, and then blends well with the elements. “Reichpop” has a texturing that allows a listener to focus upon different layers (instrumental, vocal or rhythmic) during different plays. And the male/female vocals have the feel of Bombay Bicycle Club, which is particularly attractive during the staccato female vocals at the end of the song.
     “Reichpop” is a track that will be on “Life of Pause,” which is scheduled for a February 19 release on Bella Union. Wild Nothing is based in Virginia and is driven by Jack Tatum. In a live setting, Tatum is joined by Jeff Haley and Nathan Goodman.

     While referring to "Reichpop," Jack Tatum stated in a Facebook post:
"Was amazing to watch this song materialize in Stockholm with the help of John Eriksson and Pelle Jacobsson (Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra). They took my manic marimba vision and made it a reality. It's the first song from 'Life of Pause' and one of my favorites on the record."
