The Wolf Number – “Del Mars” (video)

28 Jan

Hailing from Norwich, The Wolf Number describe themselves as being ”either the loudest ambient group in the world or the quietest stoner rock band. Specialising in long, proggy and psychedelic riffs and melodies, we’d be inclined to veer towards the latter, though anyone who has seen them gig would confirm, they ain’t that quiet!

Their live shows contain a swagger and kinetic energy that builds with each track. Their wonderful line in experimentation is given license to wander and find new paths, to take the abrasive techno-punk “Breathe” by the Prodigy and turn it into something much more like an aural lava lamp (for example).

It’s this atmospheric experimentation that they have captured in their debut EP and that is perfectly demonstrated by the single, “Del Mars”. A marbled instrumental journey through time, space and colour, pieces tumble and crash, merging together into a near five minute trip of the mind and ears. The kaleidoscopic video (below) is perfectly in tune with the fluidity of the guitar lines and the squall of the rhythm as it whips in across the melody.

”Del Mars” is taken from ‘The Bunker Sessions’ EP which is out now and available to buy here.

    Lovely… Really like how the imagery becomes abstract, ascending into the sound. I’d listen to that again, happily 😎

      It’s a rare but wonderful example of the visuals perfectly augmenting the track.
      The other tracks on their EP are also repeat listen worthy.
