Idiosyncratic artist Wolf Colony combines the sparse, atmospheric rhythms of deep house with a song structure and lyrical style more akin to indie-rock. His latest is "Paradise," a melancholy address to an ex-lover. Lonely, cavernous piano and subtle droning synth sit atop a steady bed of kick, snare and tom. Wolf mourn's soulfully, chronicling for the listener the warmth he once felt and the bitter cold that has since taken it's place. He concludes with "Watch me burn/Go ahead enjoy the show," and then you kind of feel bad for nodding your head so happily while he's been spilling his guts.
Wolf Colony hit the scene in 2012, working with producer Neil Sarin and generating unexpected attention for the track "Beauty." As of now, the lupine artist's identity remains a mystery, but that may change after the release of his upcoming album Unmasked. Check out "Paradise" below, and expect an album release show 3/2/15 at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn.
