Adelaide has its fair share of punk/psych/rock outfits, but when it comes to indie-synth, one name is on the tip of your tongue: Jarrad Lee Jackson AKA WORLD WILD.
The man is a style-guru – always sporting a pair of slick shades and a leather jacket from the era that Jarrad encapsulates with ease in his musical creations– we’re talking ‘bout the 80s baby.
His latest single, ‘Hollywood’ is about two artists/lovers overcoming forks in the road to make their dreams reality and how easy it is to turn bad energy onto one other. While this may be true, we don’t get any bad vibes from this indie-synth driven piece of electronic-goodness. Pop those earphones in and let WORLD WILD take you on a trip to the deliciously-cheesy 80s.
Stay tuned for WORLD WILD's follow up EP on his Facebook page here and catch him playing at the dates below:
