Wyldest – “Abilene”

“Abilene” is the rather wonderful new(ish) single taken from the forthcoming new album by Wyldest entitled “Feed the Flowers Nightmares”,  out on Hand In Hive Records 09/09/2022.  It’s  Wyldest’s third album and the culmination of an artistic coming-of-age journey for Zoe Mead (Wyldest). She transitioned from trio to solo with Wyldest after the debut album, Dream Chaos. Of this track, Mead says “Abilene is about someone I love and miss dearly. We spent a lot of time together within the space of a few years and it’s always tough accepting that a time is over. Sharing creative goals with people can create particularly intense relationships. Performing music, for example, you get to know people in such an intimate way – touring and having amazing/challenging times together.

“This particular friend needed to move back to her home country and it just wasn’t feasible to make music together anymore, l felt a little exposed, like a cushion that had been propping me up for 3 years had been pulled out from behind me.”
