Grenold Coffee How do you manage to sound like this? Like a record with it's hole bored slightly off-center being played out of the door of a 1965 Ford Falcon while the waves of Big Sur crash in the distance. Songs that sit in your head for weeks like reassuring spirits. Favorite track: True True.

about

The Range of Light Wilderness makes you think that the old old beach blanket in your trunk might actually be a magic carpet. Roll it out and go for a sandy ride in the sky. There's plenty of magic to spare in the world created on the outfit's beguiling debut full-length. Refracting the full crystalline spectrum of psychedelic pop, The Range Of Light Wilderness delivers tunes that are profound and danceable, hushed and arresting, fresh and timeless.

These analog recordings were painstakingly constructed over the course of several years by principal songwriter Thomas Frank McDonald (guitar, synths & lead vocals) at home in Big Sur, California - where he lives on a high ridge top, in the center of the sunset. The three-piece is rounded out with contributions from Jessi Campbell (drums & vocals) and Nick Aives (bass & vocals). Varying from the most shimmery, hi-fi numbers to transcendently warbly, one-mic tape sessions, the collection of songs on The Range Light Of Wilderness transmits sun-drenched richness.

Written and recorded on the vibrant coast of Big Sur, there are moments when you may feel transported to its expansive, sparkling ocean-scape and rolling, dry grassy hills - but these are songs as much for a party on a rooftop as they are for a party on a mountaintop. As the band name implies, The Range of Light Wilderness creates a bright vibration, crafting songs as welcome as the sunlight that surrounds us wherever we roam.
