Wild International was formed in May 2009 on Long Island, New York by high school friends Ryan Camenzuli, Greg Coffey, Bryan Daly. The three friends started playing music together in their practice space, experimenting and tinkering with guitars, bass and various percussion instruments. Ultimately relying on a foundation of bass, drums and guitar, Wild International layers polyrhythmic beats, vocal harmonies and experimental noises to create their full and textured sound… Think of it as a Vampire Weekend on a few RedBull cans. It’s totally addictive and high-octane music. Perfect when you want to wake up from a hangover (thinking of the track “Emosteg”). But not only, “Mayoridad” will help you through that hangover with a mellow tune, coupled with soft vocals to guide you through the rest of your hangover healing process. Pretty much the opposite of the previous track in fact. The band incorporated the natural elements, and built around that base by playing with sampling and effects processing to evolve their sound into something that straddles the line between the electronic and the organic, with parts of the EP rippling melody while other parts tapping their more primordial side.
