Shimmery, synth-washed indie pop artist Wild Nothing – a.k.a Brooklyn-based musician Jake Tatum – released his debut album Gemini in 2010 to critical acclaim. Six years on, with an equally impressive sophomore release and a series of EPs under his belt, Tatum releases his third-studio album, Life of Pause, on 19th February and plays Band on the Wall on 16th June.

Gemini was an album rooted in 80’s indie-pop whilst Nocturne was a progression of Tatum’s exploration of pop, full of gentle harmonies, orchestrated synths, and a wandering voice. His latest offering, Life on Pause, provides a complete, fully immersive listening environment – from the top the hypnotic polyrhythms of “Reichpop” to the sugary howl of “Japanese Alice” to the hallucinogenic R&B of “A Woman’s Wisdom.
