The Wolf Howls When I Scream Your Name 'To Be Where There Is Pale Light' Review by Ariana Leo

The Wolf Howls When I Scream Your Name

To Be Where There Is Pale Light

Self-Released

April 19th, 2019

Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

 

 

Manchester, UK-based three-piece The Wolf Howls When I Scream Your Name burst onto the scene with their debut EP, boasting a sound as unique as their name. Matthew Awbery (guitar/vocals), Sam Johnson (drums), and Harry Woodrow (bass) blend standout features of 90’s and 2000’s rock and alternative into a style that is soft, with plenty of hints of aggression. The mellow rock surface is rife with dark undertones, creating a beautiful tension.

The EP is thematically dark as well, with lead vocalist and guitarist Matthew Awbery (who originally started the band as a solo project) singing about loss and loneliness. Subtle vocal features like the harmonies in opening track “Alive & All So Well” and the background “oooh”s in “No Alibi” add an extra layer of depth to these simple yet haunting songs.

The final track, “Lover Greive,” is a marked change from the previous four tracks. Awbery’s voice is raw, stripped-down, full of emotion, and the central component of the song, perfectly set against a backdrop of acoustic guitar.

If To Be Where There Is Pale Light is any indication, The Wolf Howls When I Scream Your Name will soon be working their way up to household name status in the alternative scene. The will hit the stage in England later this month to celebrate the release of their EP, and hopefully find their way to the States later on this year.
