Dark Light

Absolutely sensational music. Really, this is a genuine feeling I have. I just love how Wy‘s heart/gut wrenching plea just rings awfully raw and honest through the first track “You + I” we shared a month back to raucous applause from my father as well as scores of people who read the blog post since. Today, quasi a month later. The swedish duo Wy from Malmö in Sweden are releasing their second single “Gone Wild” from upcoming ‘Okay’ LP due for release on the 20th of October 2017 via via Better Call Rob/Rough Trade & Hybris.

And I’m stuck thinking of last year again
When I was making money and I was making friends
What if I actually stayed in one mood
But all I say is cruel and I’m red and I’m blue

You have to listen to the whole 4 and a half minutes. It’s an anthem in the making. For fans of (#FFO) Daughter‘s epicness the track takes off literally at the 3.30 mark… And lingers on till it finally comes to an end, leaving you hanging for more and closing on Ebba’s beautiful vocal performance.

‘Gone Wild’ had a key function in the duo’s writing process of the album as singer Ebba explains:

This was the first song we wrote for the album and I think it’s the most personal song I’ve ever written. It’s about everything I fear and everything I doubt. And about trying to get better.

[accordion] [item title=”READ ‘GONE WILD’ LYRICS”]what if my dog died when I was in tokyo
what if dad died before I turned twenty-four
in my head they all live forever
and I could never let go

I should have brought you more than my love
some warm clothes for you love
’cause I couldn’t keep you warm
I couldn’t keep you warm enough

I don’t want to have to pay for my sins
’cause you know that I’m broke and I only speak bullshit
I’m sorry that I bother you with my friendship
you know that I’m crude and you know that I’m selfish

(okay?)

so anti-social but can’t stand to be alone
I try to speak with bigger words when I pick up the phone
nobody knows that I’m funny or kind
don’t know if they’re blind or if I’m just hard to read
can’t be anything

(no way)

like dogs gone wild
I’ll love them anyway

like dogs gone wild
I’ll love them anyway

and I’m stuck thinking of last year again
when I was making money and I was making friends
what if I actually stayed in one mood
but all I say is cruel and I’m red and I’m blue

(okay?)

am I dumb, or am I lame or too boring for her?
I couldn’t dance no matter where we were
am I self-centered for thinking that they’re leaving me?
do I pretend to be lonely?
do they care enough to see?
do they give a fuck?

(no way)

like dogs gone wild
I’ll love them anyway

like dogs gone wild
I’ll love them anyway

maybe it’s not me, babe
maybe I’m almost sane
maybe I’m almost

okay[/item] [/accordion]
