Five in Five with Wild Front

in Interviews

Ahead of this weeks appearance at Reading Festival we caught up with Jack Williams of Southampton band Wild Front.

Wild Front are set to override your stereos with their best single yet. Make You Feel will be released on Wednesday 5 September and is co-written by Alfie Jackson of The Holloways, produced by mastermind Fred Cox (Rag N’ Bone Man, Kasabian, Paloma Faith) and released by AWAL. The track shows Wild Front in a whole new light.

Wild Front have already wowed crowds playing the Main Stages at both the Isle Of Wight Festival and British Summer Time, as well as playing The Great Escape, Neighbourhood, Common People, with even more to come across the summer. Their next big set is at the notorious Reading & Leeds Festival at the end of August, ahead of their headline UK tour in October.

The four-piece are made up of frontman Jack Williams, lead guitarist Joe Connell, bassist Mike Flowers and drummer Josh Betteridge

We put our five in five to Jack

Your current mood:   Don’t Worry be happy

Q1: Describe your band using another bands album title?
  ‘Emotion and Commotion’ by Jeff Beck.
Q2: If you could steal credit for any great piece of music, What would it be and Why?   
Mine and Josh’s favourite ever song is probably ‘Re:Stacks’ by Bon Iver, so my inner creative would want to say that, but then again, I wouldn’t mind being credited to a classic like Bohemian Rhapsody. Imagine the royalties on that.
Q3: Your latest release: What is the title, what was the least interesting part about making it and why?
Our latest release is called ‘Make You Feel’. Honestly, creating and recording the songs is one of the best parts of being in a band. Hard to think of a least interesting bit!
Q4: Number 1 Albums of 2017: Keep, Bin or Give it to Muggle: 1, ‘GANG SIGNS & PRAYER’ by Stormzy, ‘GLOREY DAYS’ by LITTLE MIX and ‘÷’ by Ed Sheeran (bonus point for naming the Muggle)
Had to google who Muggle was, can’t say I’m a Harry Potter fan. Not a patch on Lord of the Rings. Would definitely keep ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’, we love a bit of hip-hop so maybe we can delve deeper into the grime scene. Bin Little Mix (sorry ladies), and Ed Sheeran has written a few decent tunes that I reckon a muggle would like.
Q5: Taking your position in the band, what would your advice be for someone who’s looking to do the same thing?
It‘s so important to keep writing, and developing your own musical and lyrical style. The more you exercise it, the more you become aware of the best ways for you personally to create and connect with people. Keep writing music, even if it’s not all released, it’s so key
