Critically acclaimed New York singer-songwriter Alexa Wilding ("the neo-Stevie Nicks" New York Times) is set to release her new EP Wolves on July 8 (Tiny Prism Records). "One of music's hippest chicks [alongside Florence + the Machine]" (Page Six), she has been featured as one to watch in Bust, Nylon, Urban Outfitters and Harper's Bazaar, among others.
Wilding wrote Wolves on a toy piano in the hospital while she saw one of her twin sons successfully through cancer treatment. “I had yet to come to terms with being a new mother, let alone the crisis I was in the middle of, so I turned to the only thing I knew how to do. I wrote at night, to escape really, revisiting people and places, reliving moments, life on the road, relationships. Strangely, the songs kept us company, and we both made it out, happy, healthy and free," Wilding says.
Produced by Tom Beaujour (Nada Surf, Juliana Hatfield, The Mountain Goats) the EP poetically explores heartbreak and resurrection, and is a panoramic departure from her previous "celestial folk sound" (Impose Magazine).
