Alternative rock band, Wild Domestic released their new single, “Author,” a gripping rock anthem about the haunting feeling of paranoia after a relationship has ended. The song takes listeners through the emotional ups and downs of a broken relationship and illuminates the idea that one person might be to blame. The new single is the first off of the band’s forthcoming EP, Singular due out in January 2017. “Author” is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
“Author” is a brutally honest alternative-rock track that encompasses all of the powerful emotions one can experience when going through a failed relationship. Starting off with a heavy guitar riff, Wild Domestic’s vocals shine through before the drums kick in to set the true rock tone of the song. The track is full of in-your-face lyrics with lines like, “I tried to close up the distance, tried to prove it’s not make believe. Kept trying to write an ending to the story, but we changed all of our characters and themes.” The song has a consistent heavy sound and is tied together beautifully with an electrifying guitar solo after the bridge. Not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves, the band lays all their cards on the table with lyrics like, “I’m sick of waiting for a turn that will never come, so I am numb and empty, strike a match and light me up.” Produced by Mike Pepe at MDDN Studios in Los Angeles, “Author” has a strong sound reminiscent to bands like Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and Incubus.
