ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with London's Mt. Wolf to premiere their song "Shapeshift."
The song appears on the band's Hypolight EP, out April 8.
Describing their sound as "dreamfolk," a cinematic fusion of both folk and electronica, the four-piece band mixes a unique hybrid of strings and instrumentation with heart-melting harmonies and contemporary electronic and bass influenced sounds. Drawing on influences like The xx, Little Dragon, SBTRKT, Bon Iver and Youth Lagoon, the band certainly stands out among its peers in the current, female-vocal-driven alternative/electronic scene.
Lead vocalist and lyricist Kate Sproule's breathtaking voice, which has already been compared to the likes of Björk, Elizabeth Fraser and Florence Welch, evokes a sense of paralyzing beauty against the band's lush electronic tapestry.
Enjoy this taste of Mt. Wolf via "Shapeshift."
