Having quickly become an outfit I can so readily share without listening to first hand, Wings of Desire return in aspirant fashion with their double A-Side single 'Made of Love' / 'Be Here Now'. James Taylor and Chloe Little know a thing or two about writing cathartic pop songs, and here's evidence that further solidifies their talents with Made of Love slowly bursting in to life amongst its slow burning guitars and powering crescendo energy. Elsewhere, Be Here Now offers up a brilliant call to action as it kicks in to action with its charging electronics and soaring vocals. Describing the songs in their own words the duo go on to say:

Made of Love: “In the wake of hyper-masculinity being promoted within the internet sphere, we invite all the tough guys out there to try and feel their emotions instead of repressing them. There is nothing cool or sexy about trying to dominate or intimidate others. The hustle and grind mentality is not your way out of the ‘Matrix’ (related to the Latin word for ‘mother’) but tenderness, togetherness and embracing both your femininity and masculinity is. I invite you all to put down your weapons and join us in solidarity. And to remember that It’s ok to show your vulnerability sometimes. What fire does not destroy, it hardens.”

Be Here Now: "Be Here Now is a song about being exactly where you’re supposed to be. Being present means that instead of focussing on what happened to you yesterday or what could happen tomorrow, you are simply here, now. No one wants to be stuck on autopilot, it’s not good for the soul. As humans we need to be aware of the automatic actions and reactions we have become accustomed to, and find a place of clarity and calm. The present moment offers peace, it gives us space to transcend."
