Dreamy psych-folk songstress Alexa Wilding is set to release her new EP, Wolves, on July 8th. The singer has released her new single + music video for “Eden”, which gives listeners a taste of the shift in sound that Alexa has undergone.
While Wilding is best known for her celestial folk (2009’s self-titled debut and 2012’s astral Coral Dust), her third album is eerily earth side. The six songs unfold as Polaroids, revisiting lovers past and life on the road before Wilding became a mother of twins in 2013. What the album does not directly address is the nightmare during which the songs were written, on a borrowed toy piano, in the hospital while her son underwent (successful) treatment for cancer. “It was fight or flight,” Wilding explains, “Instead of running away I retreated into song, to memory, making peace with the past so I could step up, ‘do like the wolves do,’ and fight for my family’s future.”
