Never has being caught up in a storm felt so good as the one created by Londoner WILDES,who spills her heart out, note-by-note, on her elegiac and evocative new single GHOST. The track, only her third release to be revealed, will soon form part of her debut EP on her label HOMETOWN Records. Furthermore, she’ll be hitting the road in October as she opens up for Isaac Gracie’s tour.
WILDES’ influences include Cat Power and Carole King, Angel Olsen, Lorde, Feist, and Warpaint along with painters John Ruskin and Georgia O’Keeffe.
The singer-songwriter-producer’s lush, rich production provides a perfect union to what Stereogum described as “a beautiful voice and piercing lyrics that float effortlessly above”. Like all of her revealed tracks to date, GHOST follows the same high standard. Speaking directly about the single WILDES explains “it’s a song about the effects a past lover has on our future selves. Their words haunt us, and we long for their memories to remain after they’ve gone. Even the smallest moment with them can shape who we become”.
