Shares Horseback, the third and final single from the upcoming 4th LP, entitled ‘Atopia’, out on June 25th.
Vilde began with the monthly single release campaign culminating in 12 songs comprising Study/Dance in 2017, followed by 2018’s Thud and Fidget At The Podium in 2019. Horseback is the third and final single from the upcoming 4th LP, entitled ‘Atopia’, out on June 25th.
Thomas wrote Atopia whilst in a period of displacement, incrementally between Melbourne, Aarhus and finally Stockholm, where production on the record began during the late Swedish summer of 2019. Shortly thereafter Thomas recamped to Norwich, where he mixed the record.
The songs were then brought to life with additional mixing by
David Pye [Wild Beasts, Dido], then sent off for mastering to
Eric James [Dame Joan Sutherland, Faithless, James Holden] at
Philosophers Barn, Norfolk.
“‘Horseback’ is an appreciation for beauty with
a smearing of grit and grime.
But you scrub off the grit and somehow the thing becomes less beautiful.
It’s a mantra to hold all emotions near & dear, versus wider opinion which often sets a precedent of limitation.
This song reckons it’s gained something in its transition from teenager to adult, whilst wondering what it might’ve lost.”
