Mt. Wolf is a four member band based in London, but have been gathering significant attention internationally. Although now city folk, each of them were born by the sea – Kate and Stevie in Guernsey, Bassy in Dorset and Alex in Brighton. This dual experience of living in two different locations play a huge influence on their music, which conjures a dark and isolated but beautiful world.
Their music is described as â€˜dreamfolkâ€™; a fusion of Folk and Electronica. They take the best elements of sequenced synths, melodic strings, deep UK bass grooves and soulful vocals and combine them all into a cinematic hybrid of heart-melting harmonies and contemporary, endlessly danceable electronica. The band draw on influences such as M83, Little Dragon, Sbtrkt, Bon Iver and Youth Lagoon. Front woman Kate Sproule draws inspiration has been compared to Bjork and Martha Wainwright, with her voice capturing the attention of the most restless of audiences.
The band is currently working on material for a upcoming EP as well as live shows. Mt. Wolf will be flying to the US to perform at this year’s Symbiosis Gathering, Nevada alongside James Blake and Little Dragon.
Inspiration musically for their upcoming EP and songs comes from a fusion of bass and electronic music with the ethereal and earthy sounds of folk. This reflection is of the band’s influence as four friends who grew up by the sea but who now live in big cities.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Mt. Wolf will come to LA sooner rather then later, be sure to keep this European band on your music radar.
