With a desire to run away from the mayhem that’s happened and to come, the sensational single explains that emotive feeling sublimely 

Lead singer Tom Cunningham describes the track: ‘Wild Love is a song about leaving everything behind and running away with someone. It’s a song about finding a new place away from all the trouble and pain. We all kind of want to run away even if we don’t know where we are running.’ Of the band’s name singer Tom says ‘Its from a Nick Lowe penned song, which Elvis Costello had a hit with called ‘What’s So Funny About Peace Love and Understanding’ that has the lyrics, “So where are the strong And who are the trusted? And where is the harmony? Sweet harmony.’

Score: 4/5
