Wolf Prayer comes back with a new single and video clip, announcing their upcoming new LP
Wolf Prayer is a Stoner / Fuzz Rock band from Saarland, on the western border of Germany. Formed in 2015, the trio released a self-titled EP in 2017, re-released by Barhill Records in 2019. Their debut album, “Echoes Of The Second Sun”, followed in July 2019, it’s been time for its successor to show itself. “Spell Of The Crimson Eye” is planned to land on October 6th this year, preorders are already running over Barhill Records‘ website, so if you like what you hear, don’t miss out on this!
Musically, these Germans cook up some dry Stoner rock, alternating between melancholic atmospherical passages and forward-driven, fuzz-laden riffage. These progressions smoothly take us away and the sound hits right where it should, right how it should. These guys like to play with the contrast between the two sides of their sound, inducing a dreamy state only to wake us up with their fuzzy hooks, nicely done.
“Luna”, the first single from this new album, is a tribute to NASA’s Apollo program (1969-1972), the associated moon landings, but above all, as the title suggests, to Earth’s mystical partner: the Moon. This song describes mankind’s journey and mystical attraction to our satellite, inviting us to close our eyes and surrender to the band’s own musical journey to the Moon. The video is a cool montage of schematics and actual footage, all related to the Apollo program. I especially dig the vibe of those old-school animated schematics, perfectly timed with the rythm of the song. So fasten your seatbelts, relax, and embark on this catchy trip to the Moon 😉
Here is ‘Luna’, a killer-looking video clip to present us Wolf Prayer‘s new single:
