Gengahr have unveiled ‘Where Wildness Grows’, the title track from their long awaited and highly anticipated new album released 9th March 2018 on Transgressive Records. Existing within a record that explores complex relationships and celebrates human flaws, ‘Where Wildness Grows’ ask questions of the self; practically, morally and philosophically. Discussing the song, singer/guitarist Felix Bushe offered the following:
“Where Wildness Grows is an attempt to figure out what it is that makes us get out of bed in the morning. Where do we find the passion to create the lives we want for ourselves? And with these great expectations and ambitions, how do we cope when things don’t go to plan? I’m still not sure…”
Recorded live to capture both the intimacy and intensity in their individual performances, ‘Where Wildness Grows’ provides a true standout moment from the band; beautiful, mindful and epic with flourishes of Radiohead and Deerhunter.
