Taken from new EP 'Hitchhiker'...

London trio Wyldest underline their potential on soaring new track 'Island Gardens'.

The band's precocious charm fuses shoegaze textures with synth-fuelled melodies, a dreamy concoction that truly penetrates the sub-conscious.

New EP 'Hitchhiker' arrives on September 29th (this Friday, in fact) and to further entice fans the three-piece have shared new cut 'Island Gardens'.

An immaculately formed pop confection, akin to Kate Bush' imperial pop phase or even Warpaint's more direct moments.

Singer Mead explains: “‘Island Gardens’ is about Carpe Diem and seizing the moment. I started reading a book called The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and was inspired to write a song that reflected on human instincts vs. external expectation. Society brings pressure to follow rules and norms govern the way we live our lives and much of the time we follow a system that prevents us doing what we truly desire.”

“‘Island Gardens’ represents the self within an environment - a reminder that perhaps you should enjoy the “garden” around you, but maintain that you are an “island” and you need to fulfil your own desires rather than fitting into the expectations of your surroundings.”

Tune in now.

Wyldest are set to play London's Waiting Room on September 27th.
