Take a leap of faith with indie-pop duo Lookalikes on their adventurous new single "Wild Things".
For fans of Maurice Sendak's famous kids book Where the Wild Things Are, the single serves as a spiritual nod to change, chance and courage. For fans of the movie, Lookalikes provide resonance to the imagination and immensity evoked by Karen O's soundtrack.
As a result, the large scale pulse of the song delivers a stellar debut single for the band. But above all for singing and songwriting duo Al Currie and Joel Skurrie, they show that jumping into the creative deep end is nothing to be afraid of.
To explain, Currie said the song was an ode to resolutely being yourself. This meant drawing strength in letting down your defenses. "It’s throwing away the feeling of everyone being against you and throwing down your barricades to express yourself free of judgement,” she said.
With the duo collaborating since 2016, "Wild Things" is the first glimpse of their potential. This year has seen the indie outfit start playing live shows, with a promise of an EP in the works. We're totally on board for more wild things to come from this band.
