Wild Nothing – the project of Richmond, VA-based Jack Tatum – will release his new EP, Laughing Gas, on 31 January. Check out the synth-funk driven new single ‘Foyer.’
Laughing Gas is the third EP from Wild Nothing, and follows his recently released album, Live From Brooklyn Steel.
“I think of the EP’s title as being representative of a kind of manufactured bliss and loss of control,” says Tatum. “So much of people’s lives are caught up in the quest for wholeness and sometimes it feels so much easier to loosen our grip through these fabricated shortcuts, whether it’s escapism, self-medication, seeking external validation or any number of other things. I often find myself guilty of almost all of these, but ultimately I think this EP finds me in a place of trying to go easier on myself. I’ve been extremely fortunate to continue releasing the music I love after 10 years of Wild Nothing and this release feels no different.”
