Single: WOLFF - Freak Like Me

WOLFF · Freak Like Me

WOLFF - Freak Like Me

Info: At an unprecedented time where Irish musicians are sprawling across every genre and sub-genre imaginable with absolute ease, WOLFF (aka Johnny Stewart) has consistently led the way in the blues-rock field over the past two years. The sabre-rattling sound which first reached prominence with single 'Flesh Blood Skin and Bone' has seen his music featured on HBO, Fox Sports and Showtime in the US and earned festival slots at Vantastival, Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions, Castlepalooza and others this year.

It helps that I'm primarily, first and foremost a blues-rock fan above all other genres, ranging from delta รก la Son House to our very own Rory Gallagher, when it comes to appreciating WOLFF's music, but it absolutely requires no such preconditions to enjoy. New single 'Freak Like Me's opening guitar riff is straight out of the Jailbreak-era Thin Lizzy playbook. The craving for filthy distorted guitar riffs and hard-rock percussion is delivered on a plate by the band, with Stewart respectfully incorporating all of the elements of old school blues guitar-playing and throwing it into a gratifying rock mixer. This is one to listen to on repeat, repeat, repeat.

WOLFF plays the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival on Tuesday 17th of October and IMRO First Cuts in Dublin on the 19th of October.
