The album follows on the heels of 2016 release, Rain and Laura—a sprawling and eclectic record that evoked alternative rock giants like Arcade Fire and Weezer as well as the intimate, harmony-laden sounds of Fleet Foxes and Sufjan Stevens. With the release of Rain and Laura, Wylder caught the attention of Train’s Pat Monahan. He premiered two singles “Bitter” and “Save a Way” on his Sirius XM program Train Tracks, kicking off a successful run on AAA stations around the country. Wylder reached an even larger audience in 2019 when the track “At the End pt. 1” was featured during a key moment on the hit ABC series The Good Doctor.
