Here’s an Australian/UK artist to check out: Vilde. The project is primarily Thomas Savage, and Swedish drummer Jesper Hättander. Savage releases one album a year, and recently released his next single, Grace, complete with a video. Grace precedes a full-length album coming out this summer, his fourth LP.
The video shows Savage entering into a dark and listless arcade late at night. Savage overlays the droning backdrop of electric guitars with a heartfelt poetic reading. “Who is the one with the broken wing?” he asks.
It’s a heavy song, but I can’t stop listening. You’ll find it on Spotify, and SoundCloud as well. (You’ll find this song on Puddlegum Mixtape: tape three, later this week.)
