Since releasing their debut EP If By Sea in 2011, Indigo Wild is updating their young discography with a preview of things to come. Their latest track "Pacific (Acoustic)" was self-recorded in 2013 and mixed/mastered by Max Lewis (of Columbus band Way Yes). The acoustically-driven and uncharacteristically stripped-down track serves as a small stepping stone to what may end up being the band’s true breakthrough: its debut full-length album. Though a full-band version of Pacific is being saved for the LP, this acoustic version displays a growth in sound for the young Columbus group. Full of floating melodies, expansive harmonies, and delicately crisp textures, the song will carry you to a place far from sight, but close to home.
Pacific is derived from realizations on a visit to California by lead vocalist/lyricist Garet Camella. Originally written as a poem in a creative writing class, Pacific nods to a moment when its writer was standing on the west-most edge of the United States, on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean.
At its core, the song is about suddenly realizing how small you are, in comparison to the bigger picture; a moment of sublime realization when the world becomes much more beautiful and bigger than you ever knew. In short, Pacific is about finding peace and finally feeling home in a place very far from home.
Fingers white with excitement
A tight grip around a guard rail
On a cliff over the Pacific
I feel home
Somehow I feel home.
Both eyes wet
With my gaze fixed
The sea whips
One slip down
It’d be that quick
I feel home
Somehow I feel home
I can’t feel my legs
And you know I’m afraid of heights

This young quartet formed in Columbus, OH during the Summer of 2010, quickly taking hold in Cincinnati. Indigo Wild achieves
a groove that captivates listeners with a robust rhythmic section and finicky guitar duals drenched in reverb, all topped off by waves of three-part harmony and melodic chants....more
