We're super excited to welcome Vilde - the incredible new project of Melbourne via Stockholm resident Thomas Savage (ex-Kins) - to the We Are Golden roster.
Having last year debuted Vilde with collection of tracks, self-descriptively entitled 'Study / Dance' (arguably one of the more underrated albums of 2017), Vilde returns with the stylish, sophisticated and thundering new single Flash In The Pan. Taking his trademark penchant for imbuing intelligent art-rock with pop-sensibilities, Flash In The Pan is perhaps the best distillation of Vilde’s unique style to date.
It is also the first taste of a forthcoming new album, Thud, which will be out later in the year.
In writing this new release, Savage reflected on and refined his creative process: “Thud was a new experience for me. I realised that I felt like the last time I really knuckled down and dug into something was making the Kins album in 2012. I’d lost touch with the concept of work ethic in music. Everything since had been whimsical, I believed inspiration was reliable. My productivity waned. I felt an urge to prove to myself that I could actually commit to something and follow it through.”
Writing, performing, producing and mastering the entire record himself, Vilde has crafted his latest entity with auteur-like precision. We're stoked to bring this first new taste of Vilde to you and can't wait to release more from Thud throughout the the year. Until then, listen to Flash In The Pan HERE.
