Even though it's May, each day seems to bring with it about three different seasons.
The Clash office has been beset by wind and rain, plummeting temperatures and scorching sunshine - often within the space of a few hours. It's a curious feeling, watching the sky roll past knowing that it's feeling just as unsettled as we are.
Wildeflower seems to know these feelings well. A group project hinging on Max Kinghorn-Mills, the English songwriter's work is pastoral in nature, folk influenced.
Sometimes sunny, euphoric, refreshing there are also times when Wildeflower pauses for reflection, is consumed by melancholy.
It's a curious juxtaposition, one that feels incredibly, potently English at times. Working on their debut album, new single 'Nothing Happens' is a nice introduction for those new to the charms of Wildeflower.
Released on June 10th, the fragility of the songcraft is underlined by a video which gathers home footage from the English countryside.
Watch it now.
