As a huge fan of Daughter and more recently of Dahlia Sleeps, it is simply not possible to me not to love Wildes‘ debut single Bare. The voice, the guitar strumming, the vibe: everything reminds me of Elena Tonra’s creature at its best. But please, don’t think about this brand new project simply as a mere copycat. Writing a song like this one, so honest & raw & sensitive, requires a lot of talent and even more courage, because your life and the emotions you feel suddenly become available to anyone gifted with a gentle heart. Wildes is Ella Walker, a 19-year-old singer/songwriter based in London, and Bare is out now through Hometown Records.
