Imagine yourself in a snazzy outfit, looking Gucci has hell, walking out onto the pavement to have fascinated eyes follow you everywhere you go. That’s what listening to Wild Horse feels like. The beguiling blend of funk-rock and disco-pop is kicked up with iconic swag and style. Redolent of the 60s and 70s, the Sussex-based band’s musical aesthetic is on a whole other level. It is vintage with its hazy sound screens and grainy textures. In their new release, Cougar, Wild Horse delivers a swaggy dance funk track that you simply cannot get out of your head. 

Funk guitar loops lead us through the neon caves of the past. The melancholy-drenched vocals make for a hypnotic component, drifting over the rolling funk rhythm while the zig-zagging beats drive us to movement. Choral harmonies, almost gospel-like, impress the track with streaming blues. They align with the lyrical narration – ‘Cougar, you tell me that you’re married.’ 

The three-piece band was created by brothers Jack and Henry Baldwin along with close friend Ed Barnes. They debuted in 2018 with their song, It’s Only Rejection, and have since released ten singles and four albums! They have been patronized in BBC Intros and local shows, RadioX, Caroline, and other FM and radio stations across the globe in addition to being featured in various magazines. 

The track is available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
