Wyldest will be playing at The Waiting Room on the 27th September.
The London trio – songwriter and producer Zoe Mead, multi-instrumentalist Mariin Kallikorm and Jack Gooderham on drums – are going to release their new EP ‘Hitchhiker’ on the 29th September.
Self-produced by Mead, ‘Hitchhiker’ shows the band at their synth-pop best: bouncing electronic rhythms work their way towards a typically assured pop chorus, while glossy, 80’s inspired bass and washy layers of sweeping FX provide the bed for Mead’s emphatic vocal performance, all coming together to form one of their most kinetic, contagious outings to date.
Of the track Mead explains :
“I recently became obsessed with a true story I read about a hobo hitchhiker. This dude had nothing material, but anyone who met him saw him as happiest person they’d ever met. ‘Hitchhiker’ is about the dream many of us have about ‘escaping’ society and
rejecting materialism in favour of living alone with nothing but nature, our own thoughts and air in our lungs. The art of being happy just to exist with your own mind as entertainment; what a power that would be.”
With influences ranging from Blonde Redhead to Warpaint and a wide-range of previous supporters spanning across 6Music and Radio 1’s Huw Stephens to SPIN, The Telegraph and The Line Of Best Fit, Wyldest continue to build on the acclaim of debut EP Dark Matter with this exciting new release.
