MAXI WILD Heavy Tension

Music video for "Heavy Tension"
Written and produced by MAXI WILD

Directed/Edited by VOWWS


Maxi Wild is excited to share the new music video for her single “HEAVY TENSION”, off her upcoming sophomore release, ATLAS WAVVE. Directed and edited by the post-punk duo VOWWS, the black-and-white video is a flashy and kinetic exploration of the song's strong sexual themes. 

The song itself stands as the first track Wild has completely written, produced, and mixed, by herself; this was a process that consisted of five separate drafts and the incorporation of guitar work from Tommy O, whose resume includes tours with The Ramones and New Kids On The Block. This increased control might also explain why its lyrics stand as some of her most visceral work yet. As Wild puts it, "I wanted to write a song that captured that awkwardness as you pluck up the courage to make a move for a first kiss. It's an experience that everyone has at some point. And as the chorus suggests, once the initial kiss is out of the way the mind drifts to more x rated activities. I teamed up with VOWWS to make the amazing video."

Hailing from South East London and now based in Los Angeles, Maxi Wild is a feisty singer/songwriter who specializes in an especially dark and intimate brand of electro-punk. Spending her teens as a runaway, getting kicked out of almost every school she attended, she became infatuated with the revolutionary music scene of the 90's. Time and time again, she found solace not only in the moodier musical figures such as Marilyn Manson, but also in the work of rave pioneers like Fat Boy Slim and The Chemical Brothers.

Between 2002 and 2006, she was a part of the band D:Models, which signed to 24 records and toured alongside KMFDM. Her skills as a writer and vocalist also saw her in the studio alongside the likes of UK chart legends THE BEASTMASTERS, CLIPPING, and Grammy Nominated producer Mike Koglin.

With her 2012 debut album, appropriately titled Who the Fuck Is Maxi Wild, she set out to create something that sounded as polished, dance-centric, and generally pop-sounding, as possible. In stark contrast, ATLAS WAVVE - an album over two years in the making - has head into a much rougher and darker direction. Not only has Wild experimented heavy with distortion and audio processors to shape her sound, but her lyrics have also delved into much more heavy and complicated subjects. ATLAS WAVVE is expected to be released in early 2017.
