Vilde 'Thud' Album Launch Tickets
8:00pm, Thu 16 August, 2018
Having last year blossomed into the world with a debut collection of tracks, self-descriptively entitled Study / Dance, Melbourne alt.pop artist and ex-Kins frontman Thomas Savage, AKA Vilde, returns with his stylish, sophisticated and invigorating album Thud. Taking his trademark penchant for imbuing intelligent art-rock with pop-sensibilities, Thud is the most thorough endeavour of Vilde's unique work to date.
Thomas recorded Thud during the summer of 2017 whilst living in second-home, Stockholm. He says of the experience:
"Thud was a new experience for me. I realised that I felt like the last time I really knuckled down and dug into something was making the Kins album in 2012. I'd lost touch with the concept of work ethic in music. Everything since had been whimsical, I believed inspiration was reliable. My productivity waned. I felt an urge to prove to myself that I could actually commit to something and follow it through."
Anybody who wants a raw & slightly unhinged psych trip needs to be at this show.
