Sup? is a feature franchise on UNXIGNED where we literally just answer the category in question and give you some insights into a promising artist or band’s work. In this Sup? issue, we present to you Tucked In and their newest single, “WLD CHLD”.


Indie rock outfit Tucked In pay homage to rural America and the classic rock that influenced it on their latest song. “WLD CHLD” is the lively debut single off of the five-piece’s upcoming EP, Elk, which will be released the 31st of October.

A catchy, classic sound mixed with an oaky comfort of indie folk sets the scene for this authentic take on nostalgic Americana. Fittingly recorded in the mountains of Pennsylvania, the track’s vibrant guitar work and earthy drum beat make for a very positive, sunny sound that’s sure to fill listeners with a sense of warmth.

Frontman Gunnar Flinchum’s voice is full of genuine energy as he sings reflective lyrics that seem to recall a cross-country road trip of rebellion. “I remember the rain on the windshield,” the band’s lead songwriter sings, evoking a sense of sentimental recollection. “I remember your hands on the wheel.”
