Toronto, Ont. (November 19, 2020) – Canadian alternative pop-rock singer-songwriter, Apryll Aileen, is
eager to announce the release of her newest single “Wild Wolvez” along with the official music video.
Straying away from her familiar musical styling of pop and r&b, “Wild Wolvez” encompasses a dark
electronic vibe; the first of her songs to have a big instrumental drop. The collaboration with Adam Royce
(worked with Grammy-Award winner Daniel Caesar, multi JUNO-Award winner Tom Cochrane and threetime
E! People’s Choice Awards winners The Tea Party) brought out the edgier electronic side, perfectly
resonating with the narrative of the single: women reclaiming their power and owning their voice.
Watch the official music video here. The single is now streaming on Apple Music, Amazon Music,
Spotify and many more.
“Wild Wolvez” is a song that is meant to open the doors for young women by empowering them to stand
up for what they believe in and reassuring them that they are not alone in the world. The lyrical
messaging within “Wild Wolvez” emphasizes how women can create and have freedom by learning to
own and love their bodies and that women do not have to live in a world governed by misogynistic values.
Filmed in New Brunswick, the music video reflects on women and how they are beautified in today’s
society. Pop culture makes it difficult for young women to understand their bodies. The video symbolically
represents the stark nature of the misogyny driven landscape Western Culture currently operates in and
how we can create a new, raw, unfiltered wilderness that we all feel safer in. The music video has
symbolic messaging that we as women connect through our pain by sharing our stories. Apryll wanted the
music video to portray how all women, regardless of race and ethnicity, experience some form of sexual
abuse and harassment. This is shown through the diverse cast of women, from Indigenous to Egyptian
Canadian and French Canadian.
From performing in Halifax, Hollywood, New York, Toronto and more, Aileen is no stranger to the music
world. Her band in Los Angeles includes Toshi Yanagi and Jimmy Earl (players for Jimmy Kimmel Live!)
and she opened up in Venice Beach, California for a pair of Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famers Steve Ferrone
(Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers) and Al Jardine (The Beach Boys). Aileen has shared the stage with
Grammy-nominated artist Carmen Vandenberg (from Bones UK), Billboard World Contest songwriting
award winner Julia Othmer, Grammy-Award winner Yogi Lonich, and JUNO and CCMA Award winner Ken
“From watching the Brett Kavanaugh trials, it ignited a spark inside me that wanted to create a song to
empower women,” said Apryll Aileen. “‘Wild Wolvez’ is a message for women to reclaim our bodies, our
wild nature and our sexuality by choosing who we become through the stories that make us. Instead of
hiding secrets, these wolves are ready to expose everything so that it can be healed. But you can’t start
healing until you know where the pain is coming from and why.”
