Very high praise indeed for Brooklyn-based indie-electronica pop duo We Are The Wilderness, who recently came off a successful run at this year’s SXSW.  The duo of Shanda Woods and Ryan Manchester came together back in 2010 and first came to light a couple years later at the influential CMJ Festival and took their take on electronica-infused pop music to SXSW this year in showcase-fashion.  They now have their debut LP out called Descending From Paramount, which is described as:

“not just a collection of songs. The tracks remain cohesive yet each one provides a distinct listening experience. This is an album for all seasons; written and recorded during the summer, mixed and mastered during fall and winter and will be glooming in your speakers in spring!”

Just watch…this slowly burgeoning duo could explode in the near and forseeable future…you wait and see!

Why?  Check out their video to “Just For Now” and their track “”Worlds Burn Bright1”
