Wild Horse – “Wednesday Night Distractions”


“Wednesday Night Distractions” is another hook-friendly showing from Wild Horse, the Brighton, UK-based act who have provided recent earworms like “Do You Wanna Talk” and “Attraction.” Their charismatic, peppy rock-pop production continues to excel with this latest single, kicking off what is poised to be a big 2024 for Wild Horse.

Described as “an indie pop anthem celebrating nights out and friends with benefits,” “Wednesday Night Distractions” builds from debonair guitar riffs into melodic vocal appeal, setting the time and place — Wednesday night at 3AM — into smitten “you got me tripping on you,” admittances. “You got me on the speed dial, I’ve got you on mine,” exuberant vocals deliver, with a concise dose of twinkling keys and funk-ready rhythmic galloping converging infectiously. “Wednesday Night Distractions” is another hooky, accessible delight from Wild Horse.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
