Sydney-based Wilder have gifted us a track touching on some seriously smooth and ethereal undertones. Their sophomore single Dopamine is a song which builds and builds beyond any expectations you many have had in its opening bars.
Swelling soulful melodies and effortlessly unique vocals ring true, and an adolescent yearning keeps you on your toes. With hints of Joni Mitchell and smatterings of the husky blues of John Mayer, Dopamine is easy listening with an urban grit.
Recorded in the early months of 2017 alongside producer Tim Carr of Matt Corby acclaim, Wilder have attempted to capture in Dopamine “everything opulent being indiscriminately destroyed“.
Their debut single Ghosts was received to much praise, and now the boys are back with a bigger sound and a bigger vision. With talk of an EP in the works, Dopamine is just the beginning for Wilder.
Inspired by the effortless lilt of Bon Iver, Dopamine traverses the complicated and disconcerting feeling of working through a romance which isn’t quite falling into place. A feeling everyone can relate to.
With a track this beautifully intense, it’s almost a sure thing that Wilder are going to give a phenomenal live experience. And with the news that Wilder will be holding their official single launch on the 22nd of February at Oxford Art Factory, you can be sure that you won’t miss out.
Tickets are on sale so this is your opportunity to get on to it before they are all snatched up. With an irresistibly catchy sound and that warm inviting soul folk melody, Dopamine has us mighty impressed.
