The Wild Reeds Announce New LP ‘Cheers’ Out 3/8/19 (Dualtone), Share First Single “Lose My Mind”

“I wondered one day if I was to up and leave this life, who would I pick to stand in for me? Who knows my heart and my intentions the very best and who could draw the best picture of me? ‘Lose My Mind’ is about friendship, family, and my best friend. When I am at my highest and lowest, he’s always been the one to remind me who I am and who I want to be,” details Kinsey Lee about the song. “I spent years working on this song to help it find its true form. We got into the live room at the end of a long day, and kept on playing it over and over in different ways, with different feels, in all of the forms that I wrote and rewrote for three years. This is the farthest version of the song that I would have imagined, but this is the most satisfied I have ever felt with a song that I have written. The freedom of the studio helped me find a voice in this song that I never knew I had.”


“There’s a lot of foreboding on this album,” agrees Adam Franklin. “Space is in there a lot too. In the first song, the character is a spaceman who’s trying to remember what life is really like. Also, it could be about somewhere in the world where winter isn’t like the winter here. A sunny place, but it’s December or January and you’re trying to remember winter. Something’s going on.”

New Phil Cook track “The Truth” out Now!

About the song, Cook says, “‘The Truth’ is a song that kicked around in my head for a long time. The first lyrics that came were “Do You Wanna Know or Don’t You Wanna Know.” We find ourselves in this crucial time in history where agreeing on facts feels like it’s slipping away. How can we hope to have real conversations about how we move forward as a country, as a people, if two sides can only see their own narrative’s opinions as facts? We all tell ourselves stories that we are guided by as we make choices and mistakes. We all have the capacity to lie to ourselves to help make that narrative fit. We’re only human, of course. But, also, we’re humans for god’s sake.”
