MT. WOLF ANNOUNCE STUNNING NEW SINGLE “HEAVENBOUND”
DEBUT ALBUM “AETHERLIGHT” OUT MAY 26TH ON CRC MUSIC
LIVE LAUNCH DATES ANNOUNCED FOR JUNE
“A must hear band”
“The Electric” is a huge mesh of doom-laden post punk, cinematic tsunamis of noise, and prismatic melodies.”
The Line Of Best Fit on “The Electric”, the first track released from the LP
“Subtle soundscapes, haunting vocals and broody bass”
“Enough hypnotic electronica to keep bassheads interested, while their folky roots and classical string instruments add depth to satisfy any weary soul”
“The band’s dreamy electronic-folk sound is surely destined for great things.”
London Evening Standard
“Self-starters to the fullest extent… selling out shows at London Heaven and across the country, standing out as one of the most promising new acts in the UK.”
London’s Mt. Wolf have experienced much since their early days as a band – line-up changes, enviable hype and interest and, most of all, a sense of expectation that has never left them. With upcoming debut album “Aetherlight” (pre-order) set to not only meet but exceed those tall expectations, today they release the second track from the record, and the first single proper in the outstanding “Heavenbound”. Owing a melodic debt to the literate, songcraft of Echo & The Bunnymen and The National while retaining the sky-scraping atmospherics that have become the band’s trademark, the record captures them at perhaps their most anthemic yet.
Our first taste of “Aetherlight” was the 6 minute opus “The Electric” and today, alongside the release “Heavenbound”, the album is now available to pre-order direct from their label CRC Music here.
Patience has been the key, as the band worked tirelessly behind the scenes towards the all-encompassing sound for their new material that they had always aimed for. After a productive 12 months with super-producer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83, Daughter) they have returned with a debut album that confirms that sound is now very much realised.
The band will play the following shows to launch the album:
8th June – Hoxton Hall, London
9th June – The Eagle Inn, Manchester
10th June – The Lantern, Bristol
