It stands to reason that the first video to emerge from the ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ trilogy, associated with Troye’s just-released EP (currently at No.1 on iTunes), should be the title track ‘Wild’.
It gives those who perhaps haven’t popped out to purchase it yet the chance to sample a little of what the EP is all about.
After collaborating on the ‘TRXYE’ EP, Troye once again teams up with Sydney songwriter Alex Hope.
“‘Wild’ was one of the last songs we wrote and I think it’s because before, I would have been too nervous to even let the session start heading into that poppier space,” he says of the track. “Finding that trust between us meant that we could stray further into the pop world and still feel sure that the song was going to be cool and authentic. Only once we knew the space, sound and the project so well, could we let ourselves explore that. Now it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.”
Like the song, the clip’s rather gorgeous too. Filmed in Sydney’s inner south, it tenderly documents the relationship between two young boys as they grow together, laugh together and stick together.
