Wingsuit is an indie band headed by Josh Saul based out of Tallahassee, Florida. The band captures that blissfully melodic guitar and vocal aspect of the Dirty Projectors' most recent works, but with a digestable tameness that keeps one at peace. The songs actively progress with multiple sections per song composed of interchangable elements of electric and acoustic guitar, male and female vocals, bass and percussive instruments. Juice #6 is the only instrumental from the debut EP A Few Thousand Days, where the band explores a more tropical setting. The six-song release comes to resolution with the last half of Green, a very mellow lull like a scattered mind made dormant by the state of eternal sleep.

Below is an early performance of the song "Mother Love" filmed at a house show where Wingsuit performed as a smaller band. Their latest perfomance at Total Bummer 2011 in Tallahassee featured upwards of five members.

Wingsuit shares members of Werepossum, Moonlasso, and Aircraft which all approach melodic indie music in different ways. It's awesome to see these guys in different configurations, producing a lot of quality music. This is a talented group of Tallahassee artists to be paying attention to in 2011.
