'Tayrona' is Mt. Wolf's first release after taking a musical hiatus for the past few years. Having got their start in 2013 by igniting the dream-folk genre movement with the release of their first single 'Life Size Ghosts,' Mt. Wolf quickly became one of the UK's most talked about bands. They were included in Clash Magazine's Ones To Watch, topped Hype Machine charts, were featured by Majestic Casual and within a year they sold out headline shows around London.
Mt. Wolf released their debut album 'Aetherlight' in 2017. The band won the PRS Momentum Fund and the BPI Music Growth Export Scheme and played a run of festivals including The Great Escape, SXSW and Glastonbury. A headline tour followed in UK, Europe and America with notable shows at Scala in London and The Knitting Factory in New York - where in fact the band first met Tamsin from Wilsen.
New single ‘Tayrona' features a mellifluous guitar melody that lulls you into peaceful thoughts as Tamsin's voice takes center stage. It will be released as part of a Mt. Wolf collaborative EP via Akira Records.
Talking of the collaboration, Tamsin says: "The instrumental track lead me to think of sun glitter, setting the tone for a contemplative coastal story of a relationship that ended as quickly as it began. The vocals were inspired by a phrase I overheard, "Staying together was meant to be easy." Equally earnest, melancholy, and accepting.”
Wilsen are a trio comprised of Tamsin Wilson (guitar / vocals), Johnny Simon Jr. (guitar) and Drew Arndt (bass). Partnering with in-demand producer Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, SASAMI) and mastering engineer Sarah Register (Ariana Grande, Protomartyr, U.S. Girls) to record 'Ruiner', the follow-up to their debut album, 'I Go Missing In My Sleep'.
Wilsen's previously-announced North American spring support tour with Poliça and Tamsin's solo UK & European support tour with Black Belt Eagle Scout are due to be rescheduled for later in 2020. More news asap.
