Wild Skies: Fumes & Faith
Chicago based foursome WILD SKIES came together through a series of Craigslist ads posted by Ohio transplant and singer/songwriter Aaron Lechlak while searching for band members to help with studio work in early 2014. Following a few years of creative output, in 2016, after a major shakeup in their lineup, the band hit reset and began writing and rehearsing as a four-piece. The group pulls largely from modern indie/folk influences, with its heart rooted in a blend of the American music they grew up on.
Enlisting the help of engineer Chris Harden (Hard Working Americans, Rachael Yamagata, Plain White T’s) the four began work on an 8 song LP in the summer of 2016. This newest release and the group’s first studio effort as a full band, “Far From Below“, conveys heartache, loss and the everyday challenges of growing up and finding a place in the world. ‘Fumes & Faith’ is of course, the excellent lead off track for this anticipated new release that drops on April 14, 2017.
