Guitarist Ryan Weiss and bassist Gareth Moore met to jam with friend Bryan Bangerter who, lacking a drum kit, pounded on a cookie sheet in the basement of their college science building. The noise disrupted the reproductive cycles of lab rats, and they were told to stop. But they didn’t. And it wasn’t long before they met Calen Lucas, a corn-husking Kansan whose voice could flatten a wheat field.

In January 2013, they played a month-long Monday night residency at the Casbah. The following year, they changed their name to the Young Wild.
