THE WLDLFE is an indie-pop band from Anderson, IN formed in 2016. Their first two releases, “New” and “ILY”, were a grassroots success receiving high praise from indie press and airplay on 90+ college stations. The band’s full length album “I’m Not Worried Anymore” was released in 2018 receiving glowing write-ups in Billboard, Live Nation’s Ones to Watch, Earmilk and many others. The lead single “I Don’t Mind” was featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday. Live Nation said “THE WLDLFE has an alt-indie sound packed full of striking lyrics and decadent instrumentation. The vocals of frontman Jansen Hogan are effortless in themselves, but the electropop effects used on his voice make them pure nectar to the ear.”
In 2019, the band released a new set of singles grabbing major support from Spotify in popular playlists, “Young and Free” and “Night Pop”, as well as tons of Topsify love on Alt Nation, Alternating Currents, Tomorrows Hits, and Indie Darlings.
The band has opened for Halsey, The Band Camino, COIN, and VHS Collection among others and now has over 16M cumulative steams. Fresh off the road from Nightly’s sold-out national tour, THE WLDLFE is poised for a breakout year.
