Wyldest – Island Gardens

London-based trio Wyldest‘s new single Island Gardens is a sticky-sweet, easy-listening indie dream-pop gem. Actually the balance between dreamy and experimental pop translates into a fresh and captivating track. Slightly deconstructed, this is a perfect example that less is more when tasteful production is involved. Basically Wyldest has the finger on the pulse of what the music world wants and needs. Moreover, Island Gardens is final discovery from their forthcoming EP called Hitchhiker out 29th September via Hand In Hive. Can’t wait for it guys.

Talking about the song via email, they said: “‘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.”
