For a dose of sweet melancholy, here is “Wildfire” by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Brooke August. Although not a new release, it is a song worth every revisited listen. Self-written, “Wildfire” is a sad breakup song that, interestingly, was written when Brooke was actually in a relationship. What’s more saddening than the song itself is the fact that the lyrics later manifested into her own situation.
Carrying hints of country music, the Brandon Meagher-produced track easily falls into alternative pop.
