The Wildskins formed after singer Joe McFaddin’s previous band This Love (whose album Free you should definitely check out) split up and while material from the band has been scant since their formation, “Runnin'” gives me enough to know that when a record is released, it’s going to be excellent. This has more of a warm, indie feel to it than the stadium rock vibe that This Love presented and it suits McFaddin’s voice perfectly. This is feel good music ideal for a warm, sunny day and while they do have a couple of other tracks floating about, I wish I had more songs from The Wildskins to play through.
