Suki Waterhouse new single ‘Wild Side’ reignites old loves

Suki Waterhouse does it all - starting out as a model at the age of 16 and has had a successful acting career. Now as she is turning 30, Waterhouse is starting a new chapter with music. In an interview she stated that making an album is something she has “always wanted to do.

Waterhouse has recently revealed her new single ‘Wild Side’, which while syrupy does prove her ability to craft a good melody. Through a softly strummed acoustic guitar, wandering drums and average vocals, she delivers a track that recognizes past relationships and adolescent nostalgia.

The singer claims the single is about “recognising each other’s past, the beauty and the fear that comes in reminiscing about who you used to love”. 

The music is sweet and soft, but the lyrics are very pop music-cliche. They have funny callouts like “when you got that ex who’s crazy / they’re always running through your mind” and are plain enough to be relatable, telling stories about relationships that were painful yet essential and formative. Even so, there is a real sense of craftsmanship in the way the lyrics flow in this Mazzy Star-imitation song.

Suki Waterhouse’s debut album, ‘I Can’t Let Go’, is set to be released May 6, and the singer is embarking on a tour with Father John Misty this summer.
