Coming Friday January 26th: "Wild One" from new duo Chaos and the Calm!

“Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free, until they find someone just as wild to run with.”

-Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City



Chaos and the Calm is a brand new roots/pop/americana-duo from Oslo Norway. Their energy and vibe is an interesting and fresh addition to the americana and roots scene in Scandinavia. The duo is about to release a single from their upcoming EP, and we have had a little chat with the duo about their single set to release on January 26th.


“I got the idea for the song after watching an episode of the tv-show “Sex and the City” 

The song is about having found a soulmate who wants the same wild life as yourself. The songwriter and vocalist in Chaos and the Calm, Birgitte Hellwig explains: 

 

“I got the idea for the song after watching an episode of the tv-show “Sex and the City”, where Carrie (the main character) realizes that she is not the perfect partner for Big (her boyfriend). He wants something safe and predictable, while Carrie is aiming towards freedom. I had to write down what Carrie´s narrative voice said as she turns away from Big while spotting a horse who acts wildly;

 

«Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free, until they find someone just as wild to run with.»

 



I played and replayed that scene multiple times. The feeling of a life in freedom, without rains, limitations and restrictions, away from the standard A4-life, resonated with me. It occurred to me how lucky I am to have met someone that wanted the same as me.” Birgitte says.

 

The song brings the listener into an energetic world of pulsating, catchy rhythm, where warm feelings and the cheerful atmosphere signals that anything is possible. 

 

“We wanted the melody to reflect the emotions this song is conveying; like a race through the desolated hot desert, loads of energy and with a feeling of freedom and us-against-the-world.

 

We hope that the song will touch the hearts of both those who recognize the need for a type of freedom in life, - and those who have a best friend or soulmate whom you can be the freest version of yourself with.”

Lyrics:

Wild One

I couldn't lie to you Couldn't lie to you if I tried Cause I wanna lie with you till I die

I can't be tamed

Born to be rolling free

Breaking all frames

I’ve been running round in circles like a lost one Till I met you

And I saw that you were running like a wild one A wild one too

I couldn't lie to you Couldn't lie to you if I tried Cause I wanna lie with you Wanna lie with you till I die With you love

We can do anything Anything

You and I

I wanna lie with you till I die

Let’s go, set sail

The wind will show the way

Tell me your tale

I’ve been running to the end of every highway Then I met you

And I saw that you were running like a wild one A wild one too

I couldn't lie to you Couldn't lie to you if I tried Cause I wanna lie with you Wanna lie with you till I die 

With you love

We can do anything Anything

You and I

I wanna lie with you till I die

I couldn't lie to you Couldn't lie to you if I tried Cause I wanna lie with you Wanna lie with you till I die

With you love

We can do anything Anything

You and I

I wanna lie with you till I die
