While Alex Barnes may have plenty of experience as an artist and songwriter, her new project Girl Wilde sees her breaking convention and creating her most honest, unrestricted music to date. Officially launching the new project last month with her debut single, “Bad Side”, Girl Wilde already seems to be on the radar of tastemakers far and wide.Born from a desire to be unrestricted by genre, expectations, and trends, Girl Wilde blends influences of Rock, Pop, and Electronic into fearless, edgy, catchy, accessible tunes. Her latest offering, “Nervous Breakdown”, is a vulnerable and honest depiction of the instability of young love.Over a grungy production riddled with distorted guitars, enchanting atmospheric melodies and pumping drums, Girl Wilde delivers an anthemic hook and verses oozing with angst. Equal parts attitude and musicality, the new single is dynamic and makes sure to keep the listener hooked at every turn.
While the new branding and re-launch may have been a major decision for the buzzing artist, it seems that the new project is set to make some waves in 2019. Keep an eye on Girl Wilde.
