Fresh Sounds: Allie Wilding – Castles Burning

Soulful producer and saxophonist Allie Wilding releases her second single Castles Burning, taken from her forthcoming EP, The Love-Chord, out February 11, 2022.

Castles Burning is a jazzy hip-hop, soul/funk instrumental inspired by Neil Young’s Don’t Let It Bring You Down. The song features reverb-soaked piano, soul-jazz saxophone riffs, crunchy drums, and dreamy, ethereal vocal samples. I created this song meditating on the personal loss of a loved one as well as watching massive wildfires destroy my home state of California. Neil Young is one of my favorite musicians, and the energy of this song conveys a sense of loss and death but also of the idea of starting over and creating something meaningful and beautiful amidst loss, says Allie Wilding.

The Love-Chord EP blends together a cross-section of genres and influences from jazz to soul to hip-hop and electronica. Inspired by feelings of longing and belonging, The Love-Chord features dreamy soundscapes to evoke memories of a California childhood and falling in love with music.

Everything about the process of writing this EP took me back to where I grew up and exploring the landscapes on the fringes of the San Francisco Bay Area. I realized that the album was about the idea of home and our inability to ever really return home. It’s a love letter to a place and time, and where I fell in love with music. It’s about a connection to the past and coming full-circle back to myself.
