About Wild Child
Formed in Austin, Texas and led by the band's main songwriters and lead vocalists Alexander Beggins and Kelsey Wilson, Wild Child generate complex and enthusiastically catchy indie pop incorporating international folk influences. Their debut album, Pillow Talk, appeared in 2011, and the band quickly earned a reputation for spirited live shows. Their second LP, 2013's The Runaround, featured the viral hit "Crazy Bird," which led to U.S. television appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and CBS This Morning: Saturday. Wild Child, which grew to include Beggins (vocals, baritone ukulele), Wilson (vocals, violin), Evan Magers (keyboards), Sadie Wolfe (cello), Chris D'Annunzio (bass), and Drew Brunetti (drums), released their third album, Fools, in autumn 2015 via Dine Alone and Dualtone Music. In advance of their fourth LP, the band released a pair of singles, "Think It Over" and "Expectations," in late 2017. The album, titled Expectations, was released in February 2018.
