“Wildflower” begins with some haunting, barely squealing ambiance, like an empty old slaughterhouse. Then milky vocals slip in, and halfway through the song, a small choir of voices suddenly appears, lending the track a bit of grace. But it never loses its apprehensive tautness, which makes the song quite relistenable.
Roman Ruins is an Oakland-based songwriter and producer named Graham Hill, who has worked with both Beach House and Papercuts, and “Wildflower” appears on his debut full-length Homebuilding, which drops on February 28. Enjoy the stream and download below!
