Wild Child began as an impromptu collaboration between Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins while they toured as backup vocalists for a Danish act, each trying to work on their own songs between gigs. Riding long distances in the front of a van together led to their writing songs together, and four albums later, Wild Child’s music retains that same spirit of congenial back-and-forth. The Austin-based indie-pop band has swelled to include seven members, and the group worked with a host of collaborators on the recently released Expectations. Those musician-friends-turned-producers include Chris Wsloansalla, Max Frost, Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez and Dr. Dog’s Scott McKicken, all of whom take the album’s sound from a bedroom conversation to the kind of cozy party where everyone crams together in the kitchen.
