Illustrated Lyrics for Kate Bush’s “Wild Man”

Illustrator/comic artist Krystal Difronzo is the mind behind Under the Ice, a Kate Bush fanzine (which is unfortunately sold out on Etsy, but is being sold here). Featured in the zine is this comic of illustrated lyrics to Kate’s track “Wild Man.” The song, which appears on 50 Words for Snow, is an epic story about a yeti spotted in the Himalayas and the efforts the narrator takes to keep his existence a secret. It’s the kind of imaginative storytelling that Kate fans are familiar with, even though this track isn’t our favorite from that album (that autotune effect in the chorus is annoying–yuck). However, Difronzo’s art adds a nice visual to the song and highlights its strong narrative nature. In fact, this comic helped us realize that we were mishearing a lot of the lyrics. We also recommend reading this while listening to the song.
