As per usual the release of a new Wolf Solent EP happens in March. Multi-instrumentalist Danny Trew Barton always sounds like he is never in a hurry, handing out his lo-fi shoegaze psychedelica to a growing fan base, who want more of the same, but with a few cherries om top that might catch them off guard. On EP///IV he is part Nick Drake and Bert Jansch on one side, and part Todd Tobias on the other.
Barton is a gentle impressionist, conjuring up imaginary worlds through textures and sound effects. His voice is buried even further in the mix, like he is singing under water. Decent headphones or a good set of speakers are essential to fully appreciate every nook and cranny of Barton's music.
EP///IV is released on Sea Records. Release date March 31st. Comes in a regular printed sleeve - no silkscreen this time.Tracks:
- Red Moon
- See You Leaving
- All Too Much
- Take A Left
- Waxed / Choral
