Luca Wilding has unveiled his spellbinding debut single, ‘Heartachers’ – the inaugural track from his upcoming debut album, To, out on Abbey Records later this year.
A unique dream-folk inspired track, ‘Heartachers’ is indicative of Wilding’s outlook. While it was written for a friend in the early stages of dealing with mental illness, it could be applied to so many of us, in so many differing situations…
Luca Wilding states: “Heartachers is about learning to let go of what was. It was meant as a kind of call to arms; an invocation of the strength it takes to overcome the mountains of the mind. It tells the simple story of trying to love someone through all their pain and despite their sadness.”
Raised in the grey anywhere of Greater London, Luca Wilding never played an instrument in his youth. It was a family tradition of gunslinger ballads and time-old story-singalongs, and his eventual love for Leonard Cohen, that spurred him to begin song writing. Inspired later by a mixtape gifted to him by his supportive schoolteacher, he set out to achieve his ambition.
