Wings of Desire have released two new tracks, ‘Made of Love’ and ‘Be Here Now‘.

It follows the London band’s single ‘Choose A Life’, with the pair also set to play upcoming shows with The Cribs (September) and Bleach Lab (November).

They say of ‘Made of Love’: “In the wake of hyper-masculinity being promoted within the internet sphere, we invite all the tough guys out there to try and feel their emotions instead of repressing them. There is nothing cool or sexy about trying to dominate or intimidate others. The hustle and grind mentality is not your way out of the ‘Matrix’ (related to the Latin word for ‘mother’) but tenderness, togetherness and embracing both your femininity and masculinity is. I invite you all to put down your weapons and join us in solidarity. And to remember that It’s ok to show your vulnerability sometimes. What fire does not destroy, it hardens.”

Of ‘Be Here Now’, they add: “Be Here Now is a song about being exactly where you’re supposed to be. Being present means that instead of focussing on what happened to you yesterday or what could happen tomorrow, you are simply here, now. No one wants to be stuck on autopilot, it’s not good for the soul. As humans we need to be aware of the automatic actions and reactions we have become accustomed to, and find a place of clarity and calm. The present moment offers peace, it gives us space to transcend.
“Ram Dass first coined the term “Be Here Now” in 1971, but the intention is infinite. You can feel completely in control yet have absolutely no say over your destiny, and that is a strange sensation to get used to. It goes against everything we’ve been taught in Western civilisation, but once you embrace freedom, the universe becomes your oyster.”
