The Wild Reeds - The World We Built
It's somewhat rare to find three singers so in sync as The Wild Reeds' Kinsey Lee, Sharon Silva and Mackenzie Howe. Rarer still is the trio's songwriting skills; think Crosby, Stills and Nash.
The band's sophomore release, The World We Built, is underpinned by brash guitar textures, harmonium and a killer rhythm section. The Wild Reeds grasp the wonders of song. They even praise the salvation a song can bring on opening track "Only Songs." Its lyrics begin looking back at youth "when the world was small, I didn't fear / I didn't fear it at all" and how love slips away and heartache remains.
