“Vilde weaves sophisticated ’Study Dance’.” DIY – “(a) diasporic hunger for disparate tastes and sounds is represented in his music” The 405 – “the VILDE project will surely go from strength to strength” The Line of Best Fit
Having last year blossomed into the world with a debut collection of tracks, self-descriptively entitled Study / Dance, Australian alt.pop artist and ex-Kins frontman Thomas Savage, AKA Vilde, returns with the stylish, sophisticated and invigorating 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 13th July.
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. Flash In The Pan is out on May 4th, with the full-length Thud set to follow on 13th July.
