Hey country lovers, this one is for you. Pop-country duo, Kayla and Kelli Iutzwig, a.k.a. Wild Fire, have only just started and it’s already clear that they’re meant to be one (two?) of the greatest. The sisters were babies when started in 2016 and have been taking the world by storm with their talent, their new single is more than enough to prove it. ‘Seventeen’ is the epitome of how we all felt when we were teenagers.
Kayla and Kelli write from experience, always making their music sound super personal and relatable for anyone who listens, and ‘Seventeen’ is no exception. The lyrics capture that feeling of not knowing where you’ll be ten years from now and feeling like a total stranger to yourself every morning. We’ve all been there, some of us are there right now, and some are yet to go through that. But in any case, it’s comforting to see that we are not alone in this feeling and that coming in the form of such beautiful lyrics and angelic voices is just a bonus.
Kayla started writing ‘Seventeen’ on the day of her seventeenth birthday, reflecting on this milestone and all the things that people expect from someone at that age. She also perfectly explains the duality of that age. On the one hand, we want to “enjoy our youth” and be free. On the other, the responsibilities of adult life are right outside our door and that’s, frankly, scary. This song feels like a warm hug for anyone who feels all this pressure. Make sure to listen here!
The sisters perfectly blend the country feeling we’d get from Taylor Swift‘s early work with the pop beats we know and love, creating a unique sound that reflects their personalities and influences. Wild Fires are a wild force to be reckoned with. With their awesome songs and brilliant personalities, they keep gaining space in the industry and in our hearts. And we can’t wait to see where they go next from here.
