DEBUT ALBUM AETHERLIGHT OUT MAY 26TH ON CRC MUSIC
FIRST TASTE OF AETHERLIGHT “THE ELECTRIC” OUT NOW
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 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, epic 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 six 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 realized.
” “Ethereal acoustic guitar with atmospheric electronics; Justin Vernon of Bon Iver meets M83… emotionally intense… awesome…a band to speak to your soul?” KCRW
“Enoughy hypnotic electronica to keep bassheads interested, while their folky roots and classical string instruments add depth to satisfy any weary soul.” MTV
“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.” DIY
“A must see band.” NPR
