We wrote about scandi-pop project Thea & The Wild back in 2014, so imagine our excitement when we spotted her new track ‘City Of Gold’ pop up in our inbox.
The bittersweet song tells of lost happiness, despite it’s 80’s inspired soundtrack of looping synths and glistening production suggesting otherwise.

Thea & The Wild
Classic scandi-pop Thea & The Wild is the project of Thea Glenton Raknes.
‘Heartattack’ is the latest song from her album ‘Strangers And Lovers’. The melodic synth-based track twinkles with classic folk and pop.
“The songs I have made for this album is “pop” the way I like it; with clear choruses and lively melodies and rhythms. The lyrics may be a little dark, as I tend to write them from what struggles I have in my head. This is a record you can listen to while you dream of falling in love or reminisce about heartbreak”, says Thea about her upcoming album.
The success of her record in Norway has led to a UK release for the album ‘Strangers And Lovers’, released 12 January 2015 on Jansen Plateproduksjon. Order on iTunes here.
