“There’s a new wild feeling dancing in the air/There’s a new wild everywhere,” sings lead vocalist and songwriter Tony Dekker on New Wild Everywhere’s title track. Living up to its name, the fifth full-length release from Toronto-based folk outfit Great Lake Swimmers includes fresh additions to the band roster, nature-inspired tales, and some of the group’s most upbeat tunes to date. But perhaps the most novel and ironic aspect of New Wild Everywhere is that it was primarily recorded in a studio. Known for their field recordings in unique locations (including a castle and an abandoned grain silo), Great Lake Swimmers opted for a more polished, accessible effort and took to Toronto’s Revolution Recording Studio for this release.
