WILD WING: DOOMED II REPEAT
Doomed II Repeat
Hard Feelings / Mock
It’s clear from the opening notes played on Wild Wing’s Doomed II Repeat what you as a listener are dealing with. A concept album about the fall of civilization (perhaps even a relationship!) and its aftermath, Doomed II Repeat incarnates the feelings of confusion which would accompany those events in real time. The chaos infuses itself to the listening experience, creating waves of anxiety crashing through the desire to make sense of it all. The longest song is 3:30 and the shortest rings in at 1:37, suggesting that the mental landscape that this piece takes place reflects the tension and havoc that the subject matter implies. There is no rest, either—the record pulls one in so many directions that pure exhilaration drives the listener on. Doomed II Repeat is an album of its time, mirroring the internal and external struggle to make head or tails of what is happening in the ether that is life in 2017. Wild Wing is here to poke and nudge the listener to pay attention to what is transpiring both in the context of the self and as a participant in society today. They want the listener to acknowledge that the collapse is both within and without, and how not to ignore what is happening. Doomed II Repeat is a siren call of self-awareness in the midst of insanity.
