\\ LYRICS //
We are two ships passing
How long will this last
We haven't had the time to work it out
Sitting in the backseat
Who knows where our paths meet
And you keep shouting we've gotta work it out

You gotta believe me when I say I know
(Gotta work it out, it out)
You aren't riding on this wave alone
(Gotta work it out, it out)
Gotta believe me when I say I know
(Gotta work it out, it out)
I already know I know I know I know

Yell all that you want to
I'll yell it right back to you
Back and forth until we've tired out
Temper into tempest
Washes off the madness
But we're still left with figuring shit out

Chorus

The seeds of what you say all beg for reason
Plant them deep so we can disregard them
Been listening to every word you said
You're just waking up to get back into bed
The seeds of what you say all beg for reason
Plant them deeply so we can release them
Been listening to every word you said
You're just waking up to get back into bed

You know I'm riding on this wave alone
You know I'm riding on this wave alone
You aren't riding on this wave alone
I already know I know I know I know
Gotta believe me when I say I know
Already know I know I know I know
Already know I know I know I know

Packaging and title

The album's cover artwork is a 1964 painting by Belgian pop artist Evelyne Axell, titled Ice Cream. In selecting the image, Wolfe and Laessig drew inspiration from other iconic, provocative album covers including Sticky Fingers and Nevermind. Laessig said "At the time, [Axell] was making a statement that was incredibly bold, and we think our show is bold, we’re strong women. There’s nothing shy about the way that we sound and the way we put ourselves out there. It’s a strong image. And if you’re looking at fifteen record covers on iTunes, what’s going to stick out to you?"[1]

The album title was taken from the song of the same name and was intended to evoke "free-spirited women". It is pronounced analogously to "wildebeest".[1]

Critical

Wildewoman received generally positive reviews from critics, many of whom praised the vocal performances and girl group-inspired sound. In a review for Paste, Hilary Saunders wrote that the album was successful in "reintroducing retro girl-group swag to the 21st century at a time when it’s most needed" and went on to call it "one of the most complete indie pop LPs this year".[4] James Christopher Monger of AllMusic praised the album's fusion of styles and the "commanding performances" of Wolfe and Laessig,[2] while Will Hermes' review for Rolling Stone described the album's sound as "fresh" and "thrilling".[5] Writing for Consequence of Sound, Tony Hardy gave the album a more reserved assessment but noted that the band "spins some intriguing sounds".[3]

Wildewoman also appeared on a number of year-end best album lists, including those compiled by Bob Boilen of NPR's All Songs Considered[6] and the music staff at Amazon.com.[7]

Commercial

The album debuted at No. 150 on the Billboard 200 album chart,[8] with 3,000 copies sold in its first week. The album has sold 46,000 copies in the US as of March 2016.[9]
