88 92, the new album from Houston-based quintet Wild Moccasins, blends the co-ed fronted band’s indie rock styling with a modern take on new wave and disco. Bringing to mind bands like Blondie and Talking Heads, 88 92 finds the troupe growing within their sound and polishing their chops with a furious backbeat. “We build a skeleton then give it the blood to make it come alive,” says Cody Swann, the band’s guitarist, singer and songwriter, about creating music that pulsates with finely constructed beats, that interweave and interact with each other to propel the rapturous, sparkthrowing sound of 88 92. The mission of Wild Moccasins is movement, both physical and emotional.
