“The most amazing part about sending our music into the world over the past few years has been watching how deeply people associate with it, and how much they make it their own,” says lead vocalist Zachary Charles, “We’ve since found a love for writing from a third-person perspective, as a way to more freely tell the story of the different characters that exist in all of us. “What She Wants” is a look into the life of a young girl who doesn’t have many people in her world who truly understand her, and maybe she is still unsure herself and who she really is. She lives weekend to weekend, concert to concert, and her whole life revolves around the romance of her idols, the dancing, the music, the culture – all the things that make her feel like she can be someone she wants to be.”

WVM Releases New Single, “After the Fall”

Los Angeles based, Electronic/Rock musician, visual artist, and multi-instrumentalist WVM has re-emerged with a stunning new single, “After the Fall.” A reconstruction of alternative rock infused with electronic elements, “After the Fall” is a prelude to a fuller rock sound from WVM.

“‘After the Fall’ is a unique mixture of electro and rock, I didn’t care about genres really, nor generic song structures, I just wanted to create something I wanted to hear. The genre clashing just happened that way, it wasn’t premeditated. In a way, I suppose it’s my subconscious combating people’s need to classify everything. Things have to fit a certain mold, I don’t want to fit any mold. I just want to create for my sanity. I create because I need to do it… there is no other way.” – WVM
