Wild Nothing – ‘Empty State EP’

Including perhaps the best tune of Jack Tatum's career

The prolific Jack Tatum returns just a year after making music for actress Michelle Williams to dance to (see the video for ‘Paradise’, from the ‘Nocturne’ album) with a seven-track EP packed with some of his most upbeat work. Recorded after a trip to Miami, Tatum has said that he was struggling to feel comfortable as a musician prior to writing ‘Empty Estate’. But the confidence running through a song like ‘The Body In Rainfall’ suggests that his doubt was misplaced, and the gorgeous ‘A Dancing Shell’ may be the best tune of his career. He’s getting somewhere.
