It's been a while since we heard new music from this California quintet but if this is just a sign of what is to come, then Rooney is definitely going to be putting their name back on the map.
The Wild one may be short but provides some great tracks and a sound that may have not been so present in the past. The band has definitely matured and the new EP has some great highlights. I would say my favorite track off the album would be the title track 'Wild One' and it is the one that differs most from their past in a good way. Ned Bower actually takes on the lead vocals for the track and it provides a jazzier sound to the track that we normally haven't heard.
My other favorite track that really portrays the sound the band has come to be known as is the opener to the EP 'Suckceed' which has a great introduction that seems to be sang by the whole band.
If the work on this EP is anything like what their next full length album will bring later this year, this band will definitely be regaining the following they had before and adding a great amount of new fans to their roster!
Possibly sounds like: Wild Sweet Orange, Augustana
