Boy Scouts – ‘Wish’

Boy Scouts Wish

Boy Scouts has shared ‘Wish’ ahead of appearances at this year’s SXSW and Pitchfork Music Festival. The song, her first new material since last year’s ‘Free Company’ album, finds Taylor Vick looking back on the past and ‘sorting through waves of nostalgia, and hoping for a future in which reflecting on the past can feel good’.

The restrained, nostalgic tones recall Willy Mason while Taylor reminisces about stolen kisses, gentle mist and ‘this blanket grandma knit’. She also looks ahead to what she can learn from her actions: ‘Hope their future’s not like this, ’cause I want better for my kids’.
