Watch & Listen
Fronted by Zahira Gutierrez (vocals/keyboard) and Cody Swann (guitar/vocals), Wild Moccasins’ forthcoming third full-length serves as a new beginning for the group. Look Together tackles themes of repairing relationships, shedding insecurities, and fresh starts, with vibrant guitar/synth lines layered under Gutierrez’s pop melodies. The impassioned 12-track LP began to form merely a week after the release of 2014’s 88 92, as Gutierrez and Swann’s decade-long romantic relationship dissolved.
Healing proved to be difficult, as Wild Moccasins were charted for two years of extensive touring. Gutierrez and Swann would spend countless hours in a shared van, painfully staring each other down on stage and exchanging exaggerated he- said-she-said’s through songwriting.
Gutierrez and Swann began their writing partnership roughly a year into their romantic relationship, in 2007. The group has undergone roster changes over the years, but currently exists with the addition of Avery Davis (drums) and original member Nicholas Cody (bass). Their latest effort is highly pop-powered, with Ben H. Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Deerhunter, Animal Collective) at the production helm. The result is a diverse album that blends guitar-driven elements of Wild Moccasins’ early discography with expansive electronic and '80s/'90s pop components, culminating as a resilient break-up record co-written by exes who chose to reconcile their differences the only way they knew how – working towards a common musical goal.
