VILDE is the innovative music project of Stockholm-based Thomas Vilde, former member of Kins.
We have no idea what ‘study dance’ means, but this is how VILDE describes his new single, ‘Strictly Speaking’, and we dig.
It is the third in a series of monthly releases, following ‘Produce’ and ‘Dreamboat’.
Whilst ‘Strictly Speaking’ commences as an energetic rendition (Hayden Thorpe from Wild Beasts comes to mind), it soon takes an unexpected turn down a street of ominous and heavier bass lines, before taking yet another turn into an lighter, more ethereal landscape.
This is song construction that is not often seen within music these days, and it’s a very welcome change.
Sounds like: Wild Beasts, Spektor, Radiohead, Thomas Azier, James Blake, Ulrich Schnauss
