Just over a month ago I came across LA-based indie duo Woolf And The Wondershow‘s debut single “Cloaked“, a fun, bouncy electro production about lost hope and the walls we build because of it. Deep subject matter set to a sunny, summery track? YASSSS; It’s a mix I am frequently drawn to – vulnerability-infused pop music. And it seems like a rising trend considering recent singles from Adam Lambert, Years & Years, and Foxes.
Woolf And The Wondershow certainly caught my attention along with the rest of the blogosphere – over 100,000 plays on Soundcloud – with their viral debut, but I decided to hold off to see what was next. And that’s where ‘Cages‘ comes in. A darker production with a dramatic blend of strings and sap that is interrupted by a sudden burst of electronica, it really excels at creating a moody ambiance. And as far as vocals go, I’m not sure whether it’s Woolf or The Wondershow singing on “Cages,” but we hear him transitioning in and out of a gorgeous falsetto atop all of this beautiful drama. It’s truly magical.
“Cages” is a perfect, semi-chill companion to the bright and upbeat “Cloaked”. I’m so down for whatever they bring next – GET FAMILIAR NOW!
