The jovial, uplifting, summery vibe of The WildViolets’ last single “Indian Summer” was inspired by the band’s affection for the summertime. An affection which was particularly relevant given the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the hope amongst the musical community for a ‘Third Summer of Love;.
Felipe Franco, The WildViolets, said: In the UK our hot summer days tend to be short and infrequent. This is similar to the phenomena of the “Indian Summer” which is where brief spells of glorious sunshine break up the bleak autumnal months. So, in its very essence, they are both fleeting occasions which we long for but are only briefly in our grasp. This longing can also be a metaphor for someone you love who you rarely cross paths with anymore. Or for the longing for some normality which the opening up of society on July 19th brought. A ‘Third Summer of Love’ is just what we all need right now!”
