the songs of my life: WILDES

There’s something magical about Wildes.

Whether its her angelic vocal that floats through an icy skyline, or her glacial harmonies, her latest song, ‘Run For It’ is mystifying. A darkness lays beneath the tangible beauty, and delicate layers surface and shimmer on every listen.

It’s a song that makes you feel part of a twisted fairytale, planting a kiss on your cheek, and etching onto your heart.

These are the songs that make the Aussie songstress, WILDES, feel, too…

“The song that makes me…

Cry

Nick Drake, From the Morning

Want to sing on karaoke

Dionne Warwick, Do You Know the Way to San Jose?

Reminisce

Banks, To The Hilt

Want to dance 

Liv, Wings of Love

Remember childhood

Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Aeroplane. Used to watch ‘the making of’ with my dad on video tape.”

Think differently

FKA Twigs, Water Me

Feel empowered

Laura Marling, Flicker and Fail. Such uplifting, bright chords.”

Listen to the lyrics

Bob Dylan, Tomorrow is a Long Time

Air guitar

Lynrd Skynrd, Free Bird

Feel like I’ve transported elsewhere

Jeff Buckley, Sweet Thing (Live at Sin-e)

Feel instantly happy

Mazzy Star, Fade in to You. Triggers a fuzzy warmth in my mind.”

Wish I’d written it

Alex Cameron and Angel Olsen, Stranger’s Kiss. Amazing chorus, like an 80’s pop hit.”
