Unsigned Weekly: Wild Rompit

Wild Rompit

Wild Rompit is an indie/folk/rock group made up of Drexel students who originate from New Jersey. The four-some have just released their debut EP titled Stampede. The six song effort is made up of excitingly original songs that don't follow any typical song structure. That's not all that makes this band stand out though. Blair Ollendorf's voice is undeniably unique in the best way possible. I can't help, but feel as if Wild Rompit are the gritty folk-rock version of Vampire Weekend.

Their EP also ends up being as long as many full-length records, so you most definitely won't feel cheated after listening to it all the way through and listening to it all the way through is something I highly recommend. You can download Wild Rompit's debut EP for FREE here. Feel free to preview a song off the EP below first. The group also has a bunch of shows coming up. You can check out all of those at Facebook.
