Today, THE WLDLFE release another “banger” (Ones to Watch) single from their forthcoming full-length album due out August 31. The new track, titled “Headache”, premiered yesterday via Ones to Watch, who said the “head turner” is “loaded with anticipated drops and unexpected turns.” Listen to “Headache” here. Along with this booming new addition to their alt-electro pop catalogue that’s already earned them high-praise comparisons to chart-toppers like Jon Bellion and The 1975, the band opens for Halsey tonight in their hometown of Indianapolis for a sold-out show on the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour.
“Headache” is a widely relatable piece of pop-perfection with a distinct sound that only comes from THE WLDLFE. The lyrics work like stream of conscious, debating a relationship that’s causing a ton of frustration.
Lead singer Jansen Hogan shares, “Headache is one of our most unique records and we think that is why it is one of our favorites. It dives into some deeper aspects of our R&B influences. We felt like it was a risky song off the bat but the finished product was everything we hoped for and more.”
The track follows the recently released popular singles “I Don’t Mind”, “Real Ones”, and “Towel”, for which the video premiered on Billboard in May. Their upcoming summer album follows the success of 2016’s New and 2017’s I.L.Y. The band is comprised of frontman Jansen Hogan, guitarist Jason Boucouras, drummer Geoff Jones, bass player Jack Crane, and multi-instrumentalist Carson Hogan. They produce cinematic pop using maximalistic production and an honest simplicity to their lyrics.
Following the band’s successful showcase at the Music Cities Forum in their hometown, which focused on developing the emerging music scene in Indianapolis, THE WLDLFE will return with their first ever headline show at the Deluxe on September 7. Tickets available here.
