Entering a new realm of synthesisers and electric guitars, ‘Believe’ sees a change in the band’s approach not just to writing and recording, but to texture and dynamics, too. Wilder Mind was recorded at Air Studios, London and produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Florence & The Machine). It features twelve new tracks, written collaboratively by the band in London, Brooklyn, and Texas. A number of the new songs were written and demo’d at Aaron Dessner’s (The National) garage studios in Brooklyn. This new album marks a significant departure for the young British band from their previous records, 2009’s Sigh No More, and 2012’s Babel.
