The​ ​Illuminate​ ​EP​ ​draws​ ​upon​ ​WILDES'​ ​many​ ​influences​ ​that​ ​include​ ​Cat​ ​Power,​ ​Angel​ ​Olsen,​ ​Lorde​ ​and Warpaint​ ​along​ ​with​ ​painter​ ​Georgia​ ​O'Keeffe.​ ​The​ ​EP​ ​also​ ​doubles​ ​as​ ​a​ ​perfect​ ​accompaniment​ ​for​ ​the Winter​ ​months​ ​ahead;​ ​the​ ​chilling​ ​lyrics,​ ​the​ ​haunting​ ​vocals​ ​but​ ​put​ ​together​ ​there’s​ ​an​ ​overwhelming feeling​ ​of​ ​warmth​ ​&​ ​light​ ​that​ ​swells​ ​in​ ​its​ ​listeners​ ​very​ ​core.

Ella​ ​Walker,​ ​the​ ​artist​ ​behind​ ​the​ ​monikar​ ​WILDES,​ ​tells​ ​stories​ ​of​ ​various​ ​tortures​ ​of​ ​the​ ​human​ ​heart​ ​in her​ ​lyrics,​ ​whether​ ​it​ ​be​ ​on​ ​Ghost,​ ​where​ ​she​ ​reflects​ ​on​ ​the​ ​inflictions​ ​the​ ​ex-lovers’​ ​words​ ​leave​ ​behind, to​ ​Illuminate’s​ ​examination​ ​of​ ​error,​ ​whether​ ​it​ ​being​ ​made​ ​from​ ​good​ ​intentions​ ​to​ ​the​ ​outright dangerous​ ​ones.​ ​Whatever​ ​the​ ​message​ ​may​ ​be,​ ​each​ ​delivered​ ​lyric​ ​is​ ​forefront​ ​to​ ​an​ ​equally​ ​deep,​ ​rich production​ ​that​ ​works​ ​in​ ​perfect​ ​union​ ​to​ ​make​ ​this​ ​a​ ​very​ ​special​ ​opening​ ​account​ ​of​ ​an​ ​artist​ ​making self-aware,​ ​honest​ ​music​ ​with​ ​all​ ​the​ ​talents​ ​to​ ​deliver​ ​it​ ​devastating​ ​effect.
