Boy Scouts – “Wish”
Taylor Vick put out her most recent album as Boy Scouts, Free Company, last year. Since releasing that album, the institution that the band is named after has filed for bankruptcy (for some pretty grim shit), so now seems as good a time as any to lay groundwork for some more positive associations with the name.
Today, Vick is releasing a brand-new song, “Wish,” which boasts the same sort of lilting, sinewy folk that made Free Company so impressive. It’s all about wanting a better future for yourself and the people you love. “Neighbor sherry makes a wish/ Hope their future’s not like this,” Vick sings on it. “Cause I want better for my kids/ Oh to be proud of what they did.” Listen below.
