“Based in both New York City and Boston, the five-piece group makes good use of Greyhound bus services traveling between the two cities, and they’ve built two separate, independent fan bases with a sound that merges classic influences such as Springsteen and Counting Crows, but also incorporates a brittle indie edge.”
"2. The Wild Northern ::The Whiskey Season:: Nearly 100 backers and $6000 raised via Kickstarter helped this Americana quartet continue Boston's continually rising rustic tide, but on tracks like "Send the Runner," the Wild Northern add more jolt than the usual string-and-a-jig cavalry. :: January 12 @ the Middle East :: mideastclub.com"
“Indie Rock band The Wild Northern brings an upbeat and fresh sound to indie rock. I don't want to call them country but there is something very rustic and earthy about their sound that almost boarders on folk. In this way their name, "The Wild Northern" fits them perfectly; this is the kind of fun and easy listening song you'd love to hear while sitting around a campfire with all your friends.”
"The Wild Northern cuts an earnest, confident figure in their performance and composition, finding the vital link between the two to make them work together. The steady drive of “The Demarcation” infuses the track with energy, and it is energy that is used (and shared) by the remainder of the arrangement."
“Fans and friends took up all the spare elbow room at Sullivan Hall 20 minutes prior to The Wild Northern’s set last Friday. The set included licks from their first EP The Line of Demarcation as well as new tracks they’ve been working on. My only complaint is that the set wasn’t long enough!”
“Watch The Wild Northern's video for "The Demarcation" today! It's lumberjack rock and we're feeling it.”
“The Wild Northern played their debut show last night at packed National Underground. Friends and strangers gathered to hear tracks off their new album The Line of Demarcation EP, as well as new works. Overall the blooming four-piece folk-rock band sounded more mature than their time together would suggest.”
