Jamison is a solitary artist who writes, records, and arranges everything himself, including all of the album’s string arrangements, and ‘The Wilds’ is a pure reflection of the world through his eyes. An impressionistic record fuelled by richly colored anecdotes and imagery, Jamison is central as both an omniscient storyteller and as a character himself. Songs like titular “The Wilds” possess a hazy, New England quality as he embraces the wilderness of love and romance. “The Jacket” is both visual and visceral, with a gentle electronic pulse, gorgeous strings and Jamison’s acoustic guitar picking.
