Teenage Wildlife's AA Side Single Is Launched - Lost At Sea

Teenage Wildlife's AA Side Single Is Launched - Lost At Sea

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Teenage Wildlife compliments A side single 'Come On and Shoot' with the launch of AA side 'Lost at Sea'.

'Come On and Shoot', an intricately layered track boasting smouldering vocals and an infusion of electronica, is the latest offering from London based musician John Wright. AA Side 'Lost at Sea' is a more structured song boasting stunning vocals and etheral harmonies.

Based in Shoreditch, multi-instrumentalist John Wrihgt has been making music for his own enjoyment "forever", but through his successful career as a respected filmmaker and photographer, regularly working with Sony Music and some of the world's most iconic musicians, John Wright received the encouragement he needed to release his music as 'Teenage Wildlife'.

Priding himself on an entirely self-sufficient approach to his music, John writes, plays and records drums, bass, guitar and keys in his attic studio, creating stunning sonic backdrops, seamlessly blending hip hop and dance with melodic dub to produce unique genre-crossing soundscapes. His compositions have appeared on fashion films for Fendi and Dior and he recently directed 'Savile Row is Rock N Roll' a short film for GQ's featuring some of Britain's most iconic musicians, collaborating on its soundtrack with Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and Duran Duran's John Taylor.

A pair of singles released earlier this year, 'Last Great Love Affair' and 'Most Beautiful Thing', received worldwide airplay and had the likes of Netsky and One Direction's Harry Styles taking to social media to praise them. Despite this success, John's background remains his primary motivating force. "I had a pretty rough upbringing" he explains. "I think the term is 'underprivileged'. I designed Teenage Wildlife as a vehicle to express myself musically and I use the funds I raise to support charities that help underprivileged young people."

The impressively crafted and perfectly produced 'Come On and Shoot' and 'Lost At Sea' will certainly take Teenage Wildlife to an even wider audience, creating huge anticipation for debut album 'The Degenerate Art Exhibition' slated for release in spring 2015.

Of the latest track 'Lost At Sea', John Wright says "I really wanted to just write and release 'A SONG'! Just a song! Without getting too lost in production and arrangement and clever glitches. I just wanted to take my acoustic, my bass guitar and a drum loop, a little keys and just put a simple song together. I added the vocoder and the samples just to keep it feeling like a Teenage Wildlife track.

I reworked this track so many times. Just trying to make it more and more simple. I'm not sure how fans of tracks like Come On And Shoot and Most Beautiful Thing will take to it but we'll see.

All the instruments on this track are recorded traditionally through mics (except the drum loop obviously!). Even the keyboards are through a Fender Princeton into a condenser mic. I haven't done a mic'd recording like this for so long. It's important to remember these old school techniques. It's too easy to work 'in the box' just using factory sounds. There's a real sonic quality in mic'd amps in a room"
