A wild and untamed talk with The Wilderness

Kingston Live podcast episode 65:
In anticipation of the release of their new full-length album, Strangers I Used to Love (April 12, independent), hosts Johnny and Riley engage Kingston's Jonas Lewis-Anthony and Nick Lennox of @TheWildernessBand in a spirited and emotive discourse that veers from experiences overseas to our city's local music strategy, and from to Taylor Swift. And, of course, about the making of the band's forthcoming album, from which Nick and Jonas share the first single and title track. The result is a roller-coaster ride through impassioned rants and unabashed opinions, to lighthearted hilarity and brutal honesty.
