Gothenburg duo Wildhart's debut album Shine cast them in the role of pop acrobats, making experimental, artsy music that danced and bounced in several different directions at once.
On their first post-Shine single "New Beginning" however, they'd changed things up. Less theatrical and dramated, it was a piece of slow, subtle electro-pop. And on its follow-up, "Every Touch", they explore another new direction.
They've recruited a fellow Gothenburger, Nadia Nair, to pitch in on vocal duties, and created a piece of dark, murky art-pop. "Every Touch" is a song that's a tribute to chemistry in music-making. Nair and Ylva Holmdahl's vocals complement each other, with Nair hovering at a lower pitch while Holmdahl floats airily higher up the scale. Murky synths set the mood during the verses, for a slow-burning, shadowy song, but Wildhart's pop smarts shine through the dusk - "Every Touch" also comes with a golden chorus. Holmdahl says: "The song has an escapism vibe, and is about a moment you wanna freeze - and stay inside forever.”
