Ben Howard – The Wolves

A timely re-release of Howard’s single (originally released in June last year), The Wolves is a haunting exploration of the folk-man’s sound – percussive and insistently urgent, it possesses the wild ferality of its namesake.
Building to a series of impassioned latter choruses, Howard laments with a tortured cry ‘We’ve lost faith in the art of love...’ Like a rollicking, rough-hewn painting of the heather-strewn, grey-skied country, Howard’s brand of folk is refreshingly raw, a further statement of the talent that has already pushed his debut album Every Kingdom to the UK Top 10.
The Wolves is released on the 27th February
