WILDES Releases New Song “(Run to the) Flames”
- London-based singer-songwriter Ella Walker, aka WILDES released a new song “(Run to the) Flames” from her upcoming debut album “Other Words Fail Me” on October 25, 2022.
She wrote the song in 2019. The only track brought forward to the album from that period of time. Produced by St Francis Hotel.
“It was a time where I felt really useless, musically,” Ella Walker said of the song. “I was really without direction. I had a strong connection with it emotionally: it was all about running into the flames when you're in a really dark, sad place, and deciding that you're going to change.”
The debut album is comprises 10-track ad is set to be released on January 13, 2023.
The album is influenced by PJ Harvey, Patti Smith and SASAMI. She said, “They are unapologetically honest women and musicians. They gave me permission to come out of the box I'd been cowering in.”
- “Other Words Fail Me” is the hard-won process of reclaiming her self-esteem. It marks a new dawn for Ella Walker, where her future is entirely her own.
She said of the album title, “It was a name I'd had for quite a while in my head, but the album really grew into the name - it became a lot more symbolic than I ever intended, as writing this album was the only way I could safely and honestly talk about what was going on at the time. I quite literally didn't have any other words to describe it other than the lyrics in these songs.”
