THE WLDLFE, from Indianapolis, IN, is an indie pop band comprised of Frontman Jansen Hogan, guitarist Jason Boucouras, drummer Geoff Jones, bass player Jack Crane, and multi-instrumentalist Carson Hogan.
Our chief editor has been following Jansen Hogan since way before the beginning of Audiotox, probably about 2012.
It was a wonderful surprise to be listening to this track and realise it’s Jansen signing, we recognised his unique voice almost instantly.
The song is a catchy pop track in terms of writing but the production is quite edgy and takes elements from future bass, synthwave and even elements of rock.
Jansen says: “Headache is one of our most unique records and we think that is why it is one of our favorites. It dives into some deeper aspects of our R&B influences. We felt like it was a risky song off the bat but the finished product was everything we hoped for and more.”
