The group tells us the song is inspired by "events of our individual past relationships and simply coming of age."
WILD is releasing one song every Tuesday until their album drops Sep. 1, and BreatheHeavy is lucky enough to debut "Bonnie And Clyde," the third installment following "Back To You" and "Stay." They started out doing sync work for different music supervisors, but within a few short months the group (made up of Kristina Antuna, Zachary Jacob and Tyler Thompson) had written over 20 songs together and felt "such a closeness to the music and believed in it so much" they had to pursue it.
"Bonnie and Clyde was one of the first songs we wrote as WILD, and it's mostly inspired by the events of our individual past relationships and simply coming of age," WILD tells BreatheHeavy.com. "We wrote the song as advice to our younger selves, and that even though sometimes things in life can simply fall through without a reason, there are always great things to come. The song itself was partially what made us decide to make WILD a reality.
They added the song came about organically, writing it "one afternoon to step out of our comfort zone a little bit and stumbled on something we really loved."
"This is just the beginning for WILD," they continued. "We know we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but we are ready for it. For now, we are focusing on getting show ready by the fall so we can begin touring and opening up for other acts. Of course we’d love to grace the cover of Rolling Stone or headline a music festival, but its all about putting one foot in front of the other. We hope to get to those places someday, because other bands have proved its not impossible, but right now we are just excited to begin the adventure."
