INDIE / ROCK 40 Issue 51 / 2013 Artist of the month Is Paris Burning Folk music has a new modern look. This four-piece from South London, collectively known as Mt.Wolf have already got tongues wagging with the release of their latest EP, 'Hypolight ', making them a hotly tipped artists to watch in 2013. Forming the band was actually an ongoing process as a widespread search was conducted in order to find people who actually fit in with the style of the band rather than just filling in the gaps. Guitarists Sebastian 'Bassi' Fox and Steve McMinn met at music college in London and quickly began writing together, however it quickly became clear that they needed a vocalist. Enter McMinn's good friend, Kate Sproule, who had just finished a history degree at Cambridge, but wanted to pursue a career in music. After a year of song writing together, McMinn's house mate and drummer, Alex Mitchell became the final member to the band. The band have openly spoken about their influences which include Bon Iver and The XX. Their latest EP 'Hypolight' does indeed contain similar haunting vocals like Bon Iver and heavy yet soft basslines of The XX. However this is no plain imitation. Whilst their sound may be similar they have put their own spin on things. Their latest EP 'Hypolight' as well as their previous one, Life Size Ghosts, are examples of the band's obvious pride in their work. 'Hypolight' is a beautifully crafted song, which is a pleasure to listen to. Event pReview: Tegan and Sara UK Tour!
