Words: Saam Das
We're rarely as on it as when we discovered Mt. Wolf, being one of the very first to cover them back in 2012. Better yet, we thought they were bloody good. That meant it was particularly disheartening to see the dream-folk outfit call it a day late last year, well before reaching their peak. But Christmas has come early and they're back, with a beautifully soothing new track 'Red'.
It seems like their return was almost as unexpected to the band members themselves as it was to us - the mtwolf.co.uk domain name of their website still up for sale. But it's a tremendously welcome return and 'Red' captures much of the understated hypnotic sentiment of their older material, contrasted with a new focus on the soulful male vocals. Fingers crossed they're here to stay this time around.
