🐣 SEDRIC PERRY — WILD [εˆζΌ” • PREMIERE]

It's an intoxicating sound in this one by Philadelphia-raised Sedric Perry and it's all down to the song's centrepiece, where the vocals lilt in luscious languor—layers upon layers of vocals in a millefeuille of warm harmonies. In 'Wild', where glossy kicks boom with sub-bass gloop and ticking clanking percussion skitters indistinctly creeping across the soundscape, the vocals are undoubtedly the star, the bedrock of the track as much as its ornamentation; over the soft satiny choral waves, Perry sends his own voice fluttering, rising, swooping through the increasingly heated clamour, where a crescendo of shredded peals of guitar crests, courtesy of Marcus Machado, whilst the kicks' pulse quickens and quivers.

Inspired by "Gregorian Chant music," and recorded in a Columbia dorm room, 'Wild' is "the story of the aftermath of a drug raid gone wrong, leaving two insatiable lovers pained from two years apart in separate prisons," Perry told us. You can imagine that raid taking place slow-motion as the song begins, and as it intensifies the aching vocals reflect this longing, a languishing atmosphere broils the sound in an anxious haze, those kicks boom-booming restlessly, the separated lovers together only in their distress and disquiet. In this slice of music, the swirling colours evoked by those layered vocals, that kaleidoscope of images easily flashes through your mind—it's a vessel of imagination and progressive songmaking based very wonderfully on the original instrument: voice.
