WolfSong

WolfSong is the second solo album from singer/songwriter Carys and builds upon her already impressive repertoire of styles and influences. Most of the tracks here are self penned and many are magical vignettes thanks to Carys’s unique storytelling style. The songs, and indeed the whole album, have a magical flavour as Carys tells enthralling stories through her songs of enchanted and forgotten worlds, of love, betrayal, mysticism and even a touch of terror.

With synths and rhythms added throughout by David Wright, sterling guitar from Andrew ‘Spud’ Sinclair on ‘The Old Straight Track’, and added whistle and violin from Sophie Watson and Mim MacMahon respectively, WolfSong is a stunning and unique album that avoids categorisation – its just great music!

The CD is packaged in a eco-friendly digi-pack and the download version contains a special 16 page booklet containing artwork hand-drawn by Carys especially for the album.

“Wonderfully inventive, totally organic, beautifully mysterious and teasingly enticing. Carys has brought to the table something that will utterly transfix and entertain you with every song”. One World Radio.

This CD album is available as a factory pressed, replicated CD and as a download in mp3, flac and apple lossless format (in 16bit and 24bit). Check out our FAQ page for more information.

    Following on the back of her last successful album A Different Kind Of Normal, Carys is back with a new release entitled WolfSong. There can be no doubt that folk music is making somewhat of a comeback as a genre these days, this renascence is highlighted further with the release of this new offering, one which is most agreeable and incredibly listenable.

    WolfSong is a 13 track collection of compositions, and has many stand out offerings along its journey, the opener being a great place to start and called The Old Straight Track. The Mike-Oldfield-esque guitar (played by Andrew ’Spud’ Sinclair of Steeleye Span) and the constant onward movement from the vocals and percussion is a superb starting point to begin with.

    There are ballads a plenty and Reynardine is fine example of the delicacy of the vocals of Carys. This at times gave a little Kate Bush feel to the proceedings, while tracks like Silver Lady manifest a tale told well by the artist, one that utilizes a fine array of musicality along the way.

    There is also a little mystery built into the weave as well with probably my personal favourite of them all, with the dark and classic Black Dog Rides Tonight, you can picture this perfectly, almost to Hounds of the Baskervilles proportions, clever percussion and vocals that created such a wonderful narrative that was so easy to follow, and with such drama.

    WolfSong is a very agreeable album indeed, an release packed with charming compositions like Gather In, Freyja’s Embers, and of course the title track and the last composition off the album WolfSong, a mantra that is a story book all of its own, but performed with style and such class, and one that takes the listener along with it with ease.

    WolfSong by Carys is a further step in the right direction for the artist; she is proving herself to be a singer of supreme story telling ability, and the pieces she sings are chapters weaved into a tapestry of sound, song and enchantment, once you have pressed play on this recording, it will be near on impossible to pull yourself away from it until it’s final conclusion, a riveting album indeed.
