TUNE Wyldest - Wanders
Wyldest have unveiled a third taste of their debut EP Dark Matter, out now.
Developed with producer Guy Massey (Palma Violets, Idlewild, The Coral) from an early online demo that first brought attention to the band, “Wanders” sees the North London trio - Zoe Mead (vocals, synth), Holly Mullineaux (guitar), Jack Gooderham (drums) - embrace their sparkling dreampop roots.
The song is centred around its infectious, driving bass riff, which is married with Mead’s typically gorgeous vocal, twinkling synth work and brilliant, reverberating guitar lines from Mullineaux.
Of the track Mead states: “Wanders” is about loss, transience and memory. Themes that we all experience. Nothing lasts forever and everything should be enjoyed in the moment. It’s a song that can be interpreted in different ways and I hope everyone has their own personal experience with it.
The track follows Wyldest’s early outings which have enjoyed a plethora of support from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 6 Music, NME, DIY, Pigeons & Planes and more.
“Wanders” is the third track to appear from Wyldest’s debut EP, Dark Matter, out now via independent London label Hand In Hive (Saltwater Sun, BOA).
