Alexander Wildwood – South of No North (Self-Released)

New Zealand’s Alexander Wildwood is worth discussion not just because of his self-released EP South of No North but the impact he had on the blogosphere when he released “Summer Skin.” The song is like a distant dream into a world staring at it from the opposite end like we are voyeurs in a film. Wildwood makes a prominent impact with his rays of optimism and a translucent fun pop song that is more honest overall than plastic urban throw away fodder.




That and “Bad Blood,” a more dreamy and stratospheric experience become the groundwork for this EP. It’s obvious why “Blad Blood” is our first impression. The breezy demeanor comes from his youth, growing up on a yacht in the middle of the ocean, you can feel his maritime emotions seep through. He takes that on something like “God Damn Beautiful” and implores land-locked relationships and human nature to express personal experiences.

South of No North is a great placeholder into what will become an expressive and fascinating musical career. If this EP succeeds in every aspect, then just wait until his next release.
