The Wilder Beyond (2018)
Hillsburn doubled down on their independent ethos for their second album, The Wilder Beyond, producing it collectively and recording it in singer Paul Aarntzen’s Halifax apartment. The group's soaring three-part harmonies are intact here, but the densely-layered arrangements signal a move away from their folk roots and solidly in the direction of indie rock. Taken as a whole, it's a bold statement: The Wilder Beyond is the sound of an award-winning young band hitting its stride.
