The Band Behind the Music: The Young Wild

The Young Wild’s latest song “Not a One” is featured in the GUESS Global Spring campaign video recently shot in Mykonos, Greece. The band’s infectious single sets the mood for the campaign with its stellar songwriting, allegiance to soul, and its precision grooves.

We sat down with the band members Bryan William (singer/guitarist), Gareth Moore (bassist) and Brandon Zedaker (drums) to discuss their upcoming EP All the Luck (available April 15th) and about their on-stage and off-stage style presence.

Tell us about what we can expect with the songs on your new album?

Bryan William: The songs on this EP are about being wide open to the misadventures and moments that challenge us the most. That they are all worth going through even if it nearly kills you

You’re about to go on a major tour to promote the EP, which means having the right wardrobe that can take you from press event to the stage. Do you have a packing strategy like a color scheme?

Brandon Zedaker: Black will always win, especially if it’s leather.

Bryan B William: When choosing color schemes think of ‘palette’. What color are your eyes? Hair color? What’s the mood you want to share with people today?

Gareth Moore: You can never go wrong with black and white.

Always being on your feet and jumping around on stage, what style of shoes do you often wear?

Brandon Zedaker: Even when you can wear sneakers… wear boots!

Gareth Moore: Always own a pair of wing tips, boots, and sneakers.

Your looks always look perfect like it was made for each of you. What’s your advice on getting the perfect fit?

Bryan B William: A good tailor goes a long way and is usually the next step after a shopping spree.

Gareth Moore: If it doesn’t fit just right, have it tailored (and have a good tailor).

Any more essential styling tips you live by?

Brandon Zedaker: A good belt will go a long way.

Bryan B William: Don’t underestimate the power of rolling sleeves to 3/4s. Show off those forearms!!! Add a watch! Don’t flip up your collar until after 11PM. Layers layers layers.
