Wolf People is a psych rock band hailing from the UK that I’ve been digging casually for a while now. I’ve always liked the band’s vintage style, and the way they fearlessly flirt with English folk melodies and progressive rock-isms in their tracks. That seems to hold true for this new cut of theirs as well, “All Returns.”
The song opens up with some dark, funky guitar leads that explode into something Zappa might have orchestrated back in the way–but without the playful attitude. Yes, Wolfe People certainly feel stone-faced and no-nonsense as they guide the track through a chilling first verse, earth-shaking guitar chords, and a mountainous solo. It’s one of what’s sure to be several great tracks on the band’s forthcoming album on Jagjaguwar, Fain. It’s dropping April 30th.
