New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Austin, TX's Wild Child are sharing a new music video for their hit song "Sinking Ship" off of the band's best selling new album Expectations (Dualtone Records). The video, which premiered with Billboard, celebrates the visceral, fleeting nature of love and the beauty that can only be found in temporary moments. The song has struck a chord with listeners, racking up an impressive 21 MILLION+ streams on Spotify alone.
"It's as much of me as I can put into a song, so I was really excited that someone [director Matt Smuckler] wanted to come in and do something special for it," singer Kelsey Wilson told Billboard. "Matt painted this picture through all these scenarios of this couple that really tripped me out because there were things I'd done in my life in every single shot -- sitting outside, shooting cans with BB guns, getting a drunk significant other into the show to get them sober, right down to the liquor they're drinking. Every single shot was something I'd done before with the person the song was about. The first time I watched it I couldn't breathe, especially watching my sister act it all out."

For the recording of Expectations, the band traveled across the world to work with multiple producers (and accomplished musicians in their own right) on the album, including Chris Walla (formerly Death Cab For Cutie), Chris Boosahda (Shakey Graves), Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog), Max Frost and Adrian Quesada (Brownout, Black Pumas). The album has been warmly received by fans, and has seen Wild Child achieve their strongest radio play yet, with lead single "Think It Over" reaching #15 on AAA. The band's best selling record to date has also led to 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and over 112 Million aggregate streams and counting on the service for their entire catalog.

The album has been embraced by Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Paste Magazine, and The Austin Chronicle, who said, "Without sacrificing Wild Child's signature pop swell, Expectations emerges soulful and serious." Over the summer, the band taped a performance for Austin City Limits' 44th season, which features performances from John Prine, Kacey Musgraves, St. Vincent, and Anderson East. The performance will air January 19, 2019.
