Wild Love - I Hate That I Need You (single)
Meet WILD LOVE, your new favourite band. In an era of pop music where many bands feel the need to drop their guitar to make pop music, Wild Love is doing anything but the sort, and intends to bring a little attitude back to pop music… The band hails from all over the world from Ireland to Turkey to New York. They quickly made a name for themselves after moving to Nashville to play larger venues like Marathon Music Works, festivals like Live on the Green, and receiving support from Nashville’s largest independent radio station Lightning 100 across all their singles. Since the move, through the singing and songwriting of frontman Brandon Gorman (Ireland), the production of guitarist Michael Crecca (New York) and groove of bassist Saygīn Geçener (Turkey), they’ve taken their lively, attitude driven rock sound and channeled it into hook heavy pop songs for a new era of Wild Love.
Wild Love is stepping in front of the filter. They do everything with honesty on their new single ‘I Hate That I Need You’. As honesty is the best policy, and as cliché as that sounds, it’s been their mentality that they have been operating under since they started making new music. Taking their music to the next level and seriously, they are just doing what comes natural, feels good, feels like them, and not overthinking it.
“The title and lyrics kind of say it all. Not much more to say about it. It’s my internal monologue that slipped out and very much a look into how I process things” Brandon comments on the song
‘I Hate That I Need You’ genre(s) indie rock, pop rock, pop, indie pop, rock; with similarities to Wallows, and The Academic. The attitude of 90s/2000s pop punk bands like Green Day and Sum 41, the sonic and lyrical tone of bands like Blur, The Vaccines and Franz Ferdinand, with the sheen of modern pop bands like Valley and The Academic. The sound takes you a few decades back, intentionally. Overall, the track is more interesting musically than lyrically. But still, it falls into the sea of thousands similar tracks.
"And I don’t need my voice, no
To say how I feel
Your hands pressed around my neck, is
This what makes it real"
