heavy wild - Dope Gods

London newcomers heavy wild have returned this week with their brand new single ‘Dope Gods’, coinciding with announcing a run of UK tour dates this February. With its fuzzy vocals and nostalgic synth textured sound, the track delivers on all fronts through an atmospheric haze of emotion. Commenting on the new single, vocalist Wolfgang Harte shares, “I wrote the song on the back of getting the news last January that an old friend had died. We were best friends around the ages of 15-17 and had so many crazy times wrapped up in that period of adolescence.   There was sort of this movie playing in my head of our friendship over that time and the lyrics are born out of that, reflecting on those hectic teenage days and the sadness of losing a friend.” Take a listen to the poignant number for yourselves below.

Tour Dates
February 1st, The Waiting Room, London
