Londonâ€™s Mt. WolfÂ return with a stand out single in â€œGoldenâ€, which features the intimate vocals of hotly-tipped Australian vocalist St. South. Her leftfield pop stylings compliment the atmospheric electro-acoustic instrumentation on a brooding track that bridges the gap between this yearâ€™s critically acclaimed Hex EP and a long awaited debut album coming early 2017.
The road up to now has been nothing if not eventful â€“ including a line-up change, sell-out shows across Europe and the US, a brief hiatus last year that only invigorated the band and significant, ongoing critical support. Getting to this point hasnâ€™t been easy but the feeling is that the real rewards, for the band and for us the listeners, are still to come.Mt. Wolfâ€™s producer / frontman Sebastian Fox â€œBassiâ€ says of the collaboration with St. South, who like Mt. Wolf has had considerable blog support over the last couple of years: “We discovered her through Spotify, and asked straight out if she wanted to work on some music together. Â We sent her Stevie’s guitar part and she laid her vocals on that, explaining that it was about struggling with anxiety. I then started producing the track and added vocals making the song a dialogue between one person expressing their anxiety, and the other apologising for their part in causing it, and their inability to diminish it.”Since this yearâ€™s comeback EP the band have kept busy writing and recording for their as yet untitled debut LP with Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83, Daughter).
Early listens confirm this as their boldest, most ambitious output yet; you can hear for yourself as album material and hotly anticipated new live dates start to surface later this year.
