Wild incorporates modern drum machine and synth elements to transport listeners to a dreamy ocean shore, where Dobbins' vocals beckon calling, wild love, and imagination. Written on the rocky Maine coast, inspired by the overwhelming vastness of creation and the Creator, this song aims to bring the spiritual experience that took place during the writing process directly to the ears of all who hear. With lyrics like, “when you move you send my heart out running like a fool,” and sweeping instrumentals designed to enhance the sentiment, the song aims to inspire a great sense of awe and wonder.
Recorded at Rocking Horse Studio in Pittsfield NH, the modern production on this track is a new direction for Katie musically. Lyrically there are elements of venture and discovery, with versing like "leave the shore behind" and "let's go where the clouds meet the sea." The production mirrors this invitation for new revelation with little sound treasures hidden throughout that may be discovered long after the first listen. The song was mixed by Emmy-nominated producer Brian Coombes and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineers Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice, of Peerless Mastering.
