Just released earlier this month, “W.I.L.D.” is already a pop-punk anthem to punch a hole into your summer. MY channels vocal stylings not unlike Paramore’s Hayley Williams to summon the ferocity that every new up-and-comer should have. Pushing the boundaries of her earlier releases that lend a tone of power-balladry and heartache, “W.I.L.D” shows off a much bolder, much more confident version of the young singer.
The Swedish singer-songwriter, MY believes that pop songs can be hard-hitting and that they too can have a place the moshpit. While her tracks have a strong rock back-bone, the artists wears her heart on her sleeve with honest and relatable lyrics. In “W.I.L.D.” she showcases her vocal reach and allows for synth undertones to mesh with distorted guitar licks. Mixing pop-punk that hit popularity in the early 2000’s, with electronic influences that dominated EDM of the 2010’s, MY blends styles effortlessly.
MY sings, “Welcome to the wild,” as she brings us into her undeniable sound of strength and confidence. The song does not scream out with bravado, but rather installs a type of self-worth and uses a power-house vocal to cement her place on pop music’s radar.
