Ouvir Jon Wiilde foi amor à primeira vista. Do início ao fim foi um derreter por completo. Da parte instrumental aos efeitos da voz, tudo está conjugado de forma a que sintamos rendidos a uma atmosfera luxuriante, redentora, mas também sombria. Existe uma grande dicotomia entre as emoções que se vão sentido ao longo do tema. Este combate entre o a luz e a escuridão no que toca a emoções passionais. A complementar a música, Jon Wiilde brinda-nos também com um vídeo genial que, mesmo sendo de plano limitado, consegue transbordar a intensidade e brutalidade com que estas emoções são sentidas. O impacto não se faz esperar. Sobre este tema e o seu vídeo (que podem ver já a seguir), Jon Wiilde diz:

Arms was the first song that I made that truly sounded like what I felt was uniquely and authentically me as an artist. I have a deep love for the era of the 1960’s and 1970’s but don't want to sound stuck in the past. I’ve been describing the vibe as “70’s psychedelic vulnerability”. The song on the surface I think sounds like a love song a little bit, but really it’s more about escapism. I tend use love, sex, and relationships as an escape from reality, and to an incredibly unhealthy extent at times. Lyrics like “I just want to hold you until my arms fall off” sound cute at the surface, but really it’s how I feel, it’s not healthy and that’s where the dark turns of the video come from. Also I really wanted to see if a story could be told from just the legs down. Can you make someone really feel something and keep a viewer engaged without getting lost in the vanity of a face or a full body? It forces you to take the feelings as they are and the that you have to focus on the story and emotions.



Sobre o seu percurso o artista conta-nos: I grew up in a household with a love of music from a wide mix. My mom loved Sinatra, Pablo Cruz, Carole King. My dad was all about Zeppelin, Metallica, The Who. Between the two of them I got a great mix of influences. I started off playing bass when I was 12 years old because my dad played bass in college. Also I was a total nerd and thought playing music was going to help me get girls.

É raro um primeiro trabalho ser tão competente em todas as suas vertentes: sonora e estética. Sem dúvida que estamos perante um artista que espero que nos continue a brinda com a sua originalidade.  

Jon Wiilde is an artist showcasing a combination of psychedelia, raw vulnerability, and a true love for songwriting. A splash of the 70's hits the ear when you listen to the music from this Sacramento based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. All the while, not sacrificing a modern sound and keeping very true to the universal reality that great songs and great art comes from an absolutely authentic, genuine, and inherently unique perspective.



Does this have any purpose?
Do I have a purpose?

I know I’m supposed to be a good person

I know I’m supposed to be a good person

My whole life feels like you hold it all together
Lover you make me feel better
Whole life feels like you got me understood
