WOLF PEOPLE
  • Debut 'Empty Vessels' Video
  • Announce first ever USA tour dates with Unknown Mortal Orchestra
  • Fain Out Now via Jagjaguwar
 
 
 
 
Wolf People:  L-R: Tom Watt (drums), Jack Sharp (vocals/guitar)Joe Hollick (guitar), moody), Dan Davies (bass, vocals)
Wolf People have released the second video from their fêted second album, Fain for the track "Empty Vessels".  Jack Sharp says of the track: "A storm is coming. Empty Vessels was written in fits and starts over a long wet summer under the spell of George Ewart Evans, an oral historian from Suffolk, whose books I was reading on trips to Dunwich, Blaxhall and Aldeburgh. The conditions of those trips were echoed when the song was recorded in Yorkshire, in the squally spring showers on the Dales."
 

The video was inspired by the artwork for the album (done by the band's guitarist Joe Hollick) which itself was inspired by a 1950s video for Poem Electronique by the composer Edgard Varese. Working again with director Phil Poole, the video takes imagery both from the band's artwork and their equipment and intersperses it with captured moments of the band performing.  A beguiling piece of video making, Poole says: "Using the 'Fain' artwork as inspiration, the video for Empty Vessels was put together as an abstract piece exploring the many layers and depths to the track, through a combination of unorthodox visuals and motion graphics."
 
Praise for Fain:
"An ability to create a totally convincing alternative universe via beautifully crafted lyrics; British folk-informed compositions; the freely breathing, tight-but-loose execution that accepts few extra ingredients to the sound of a superbly tuned-in band playing together in a room" The Line Of Best Fit 
 
"A stirring, quietly formidable achievement" Prog

" [they] have just enough Sabbath-styled hard riffing to appeal to even the basest rock fan. " Mojo

"a spidery tangle of rural mores and garage grooves" Uncut
Kicking off their UK tour today in Birmingham, Wolf People are also delighted to announce their first ever North American tour dates with Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
