WILDES (aka the solo-project of London-based singer/songwriter Ella Walker) is fresh off the release of her debut album, Other Words Fail Me… She caught our ears with the lightly bubbling indie pop of single “Far and Wide.” Her excellent vocals give off an inescapable longing vibe while the lightly buzzing instruments form an atmospheric backbone that inspires feelings of relaxation or nostalgia, depending on your current headspace. About the song, Walker says:
“‘Far and Wide’ is a celebration of friendship. It reflects the madness and uncertainty of early adulthood and the constant change and turbulence we all go through. After neglecting them for a long time, I realized how constant and secure my friendships had become… The constant support and unconditional love of these people is the reason I am here today. So this is a love letter to those friends who saved me – I would do anything for you.”
