London newcomers heavy wild share haunting yet ethereal number “Dope Gods,” building a tension between dreamy and emotive with a signature soundscape of lush synths, atmospheric vocals and warm guitar tones.
With poignant vocals that swell toward a euphoric climax, the hazy track reflects on losing a friend and comes to life with tinges of bittersweet nostalgia as it swirls through a captivating instrumentation that’s both bold and intricate.
Drawn from a personal loss yet brimming with a heartfelt relatability, 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.”
