We're a big fan of all things Eves Karydas, with the Australian popstar-on-the-rise proving to be an unstoppable force ever since the release of her debut album summerskin, which offered an intimate yet soaring look at who may just be Australia's next significant international export. From there, she's only just gotten bigger, touring the Falls Festival circuit and supporting names including George Ezra, both solidifying her addictive live presence - something she's sure to highlight on her upcoming album tour, which kicks off on February 14th before shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and a special homecoming show in Cairns.
Today, however, marks the arrival of a visual for Wildest Ones - a sure-fire summerskin highlight - which places Karydas in the spotlight for a clip that feels really quite raw, intimate and personal - perfectly matching the single's most softly-sung feel. Co-directed by Karydas with Michelle Pitiris, the minimalist clip really brings the single's soft, comforting feeling to the forefront, in a way which Eves describes brings themes of evolution and growth. "It’s built around the idea of ‘becoming’ something more," she says. "Whether that be more open, more free, more wild... Letting go of hang-ups, being bold. I remove my layers of clothing to portray an evolution of self.
"We define love the way we experience it.
But from this moment forth I choose to:
Let go of old hang-ups.
Discard old stories I’ve told myself about my self-worth.
Stop believing everything other people tell me about myself.
From this moment forth and onwards forever:
It’s okay to feel everything.
To miss someone.
To open up.
To let go.
To love, fearlessly, deeply, wildly."
