Southampton’s Wild Front have returned with their second single, ‘Make You Feel’, from their debut album, which is set to be released in 2019.
Following appearances at this year’s Great Escape festival (including one as part of the Brightonsfinest showcase), the band went on to open the main stage on Saturday at the Isle of Wight festival in June, played BST in London, as well as performing at Reading & Leeds festival at the end of August. The four-piece are also scheduled to headline Brighton’s The Hope & Ruin on 10th October.
Co-written by Alfie Jackson of The Holloways, ‘Make You Feel’ is an outrageously infectious slice of indie dream-pop. “Lyrically, ‘Make You Feel’ deals with the issues faced in relationships in times where you unintentionally shut people off because of your own personal issues,” the band explain.
“Sometimes you have a lot to work on in your own life, and it can be so easy to neglect the people closest to you, and it can often feel like in those moments that you are not ready for a relationship. It’s the moment you recognise the way you’ve treated the person you’re with. The song is a cry from a place of guilt and insecurity.”
