Wyldest – Hitchhiker

London synth-pop trio Wyldest just announced the release of their upcoming debut EP Hitchhiker and consequently shared its title track. The band’s mastermind Zoe Mead has curated the cinematic production of the song, as well as having delivered a sleek vocal performance that magically floats over a ’80s-tinged wistful soundscape made of shimmering synth hooks and thumping electronic textures.

Speaking of the track, Mead explains: “I recently became obsessed with a true story I read about a hobo hitchhiker. This dude had nothing material, but anyone who met him saw him as happiest person they’d ever met. ‘Hitchhiker’ is about the dream many of us have about ‘escaping’ society and rejecting materialism in favour of living alone with nothing but nature, our own thoughts and air in our lungs. The art of being happy just to exist with your own mind as entertainment; what a power that would be.
