Track of the Day

TRACK OF THE DAY: Wyldest – ‘Dark Matter’

London shoegazers Wyldest are back, with the first single to be taken from their upcoming debut EP, due early next year. As the track’s title suggests, the group hold a fascination with the unseen things and the mysterious. Yet ‘Dark Matter’ remains to be both atmospheric and intensely melodic.

The single, produced by Guy Massey (Palma Violets/The Libertines), brings about a deeper experimentation and a surprise progression within the trio’s music. As the track reaches it climax, this becomes clear, the guitars ramp up velocity and lead a darker groove into fruition, resting atop of warping synths and haunting vocal harmonies.

It’s a beautifully contained whirlpool of wondrous dream pop. Wyldest have found their calling, and I think we’re more than ready to jump aboard their light-speed train.

Wyldest play The Waiting Room in London on Friday 27th November supporting Martha Ffion, for more info and tickets head here.
