Wild Nothing is an American indie rock/dream pop band from Blacksburg, Virginia, formed in late 2009 by Jack Tatum. During live performances, Tatum is joined by additional musicians, currently Nathan Goodman (guitar), Jeff Haley (bass), Kevin Knight (keyboards) and Jeremiah Johnson (drums).
Tatum's project garnered a bit of buzz with a synthy, glimmering cover of Kate Bush's "Cloudbusting." . Wild Nothing's first single, Summer Holiday, was released on Captured Tracks before 2009 came to a close. The band's debut full-length, Gemini, was released in the spring of 2010 and garnered Wild Nothing all kinds of critical acclaim.
For his next record, Tatum worked with producerNicolas Vernhes at his Rare Book Room Studios. The result was 2012's album Nocturne. Another stop-gap EP arrived in 2013 in the form of the stylistically scattered Empty Estate EP.
