“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.
Matching the swirling, jagged electronica of the track is now a video created by collaborator Elin Ghersinich, replete with hallucinogenic visuals, and, for the first time, Thomas himself appearing to provide limber movements to the visceral beats.
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, and the video provided is the perfect visual accompaniment.
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 now, with the full-length Thud set to follow on 13th July.
