In the past year global displacement has hit an all time high with over 65.3 million of the world's residents becoming migrants or refugees. No Wyld are a Brooklyn-via-Auckland trio who identify with the idea of 'home' as transient, and this is the story behind "Flags," premiering today on The FADER. It's an electronic infused hip-hop track with jazzy nuances as a trumpet blares over a skeletal, fleeting snare instrumental.

In an email to The FADER, the group detailed the influence of the song: "Growing up in a lot of places and in constant movement has shaped our identities. It's been difficult to find a home or any sense of belonging. 'Flags' is about accepting our nomadic past and present, and beginning to use them to empower ourselves."
