“We Were Wild” by Today The Moon, Tomorrow The Sun is a track like Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up”. It defies all you thought you knew about rock music, takes things in a completely different direction than expected — a direction much more anthemic and epic. Today The Moon, Tomorrow The Sun draws from an insurmountable realm of influence.
Dance, pop, rock, electronic, it’s all indie at its core but it extends into an entirely different plane of existence when compared to so much of the music out there today. And “We Were Wild” capitalizes on these influences, with Mew-esque vocals, dark electronic beats complemented by a heavy drum rhythm, dropping in hints of fuzz, synth, and flirting with Stars-like plays on tempo and volume.
