88 92, the new album from Houston-based quintet Wild
Moccasins, blends the co-ed fronted band’s indie rock
styling with a modern take on new wave and disco.
Bringing to mind bands like Blondie and Talking Heads,
88 92 finds the troupe growing within their sound and
polishing their chops with a furious backbeat. “We build
a skeleton then give it the blood to make it come alive,”
says Cody Swann, the band’s guitarist, singer and
songwriter, about creating music that pulsates with
finely constructed beats, that interweave and interact
with each other to propel the rapturous, sparkthrowing
sound of 88 92. The mission of Wild Moccasins is
movement, both physical and emotional.
