Premiere: Wyldest’s ‘Headrush’ tells of modern loneliness

10.10.18

London shoegaze trio Wyldest have been gaining support from all corners for a number of years with their dreamy, yet oftentimes eerie sound.

Following recent performances at Green Man Festival and The Great Escape, the band have released details of their long-awaited debut album, ‘Dream Chaos’, produced by frontwoman Zoe Mead, as well as an upcoming UK tour, starting in London with support from Bristol’s Fenne Lily on 12th October.

If that wasn’t enough, they’ve also unveiled the first single from their upcoming release, ‘Headrush’, which we’re premiering below. The hazy new track showcases the band at their misty and chaotic best and is the perfect taster of things to come. With an infectious drumbeat, coupled with captivating guitar and bass, the cut is perfectly timed for those wistful Autumn nights.

Mead describes the track as “a song about loneliness but not in the sense of being physically alone more the sense of being surrounded by people. Speaking from personal experience, the lack of connection with anyone in proximity can create an even more intense feeling of loneliness than the traditional sense of loneliness associated with seclusion.”

Check it out below.

Wyldest will release ‘Dream Chaos’ on March 1st – preorder 'Headrush' here.
