Cardiff duo Cotton Wolf – Llion Robertson & Seb Goldfinch – are back with a brand new album ‘Ofni’ (‘Fear’ in Welsh), which will be released on October 4th.
Ofni is the follow up to their spellbinding debut LP, Life In Analogue in 2017, one of the year’s finest. A gorgeous marriage of epic euphoria, ethereal electronica and frosty, crisp elegance – it is spine-tingling musical cinematography at its very finest.
Set against a thematic backdrop of social uncertainty, the album’s darker material is simultaneously imbued with anxious paranoia and a hopeful positivity. The pair embrace faster tempos and purer electronic sounds, alongside hypnotic, abstract and melodic ideas that so marked to their previous work. Whilst the vast majority if the record is instrumental, latest single and title track features Adwaith’s Hollie Singer. Singer’s exquisite, ethereal vocal is set to a backdrop of a well whisked blend of lush electronics, warm tones, hypnotic beats and stabs of synth, and undulating ripples of ethereal escapism. Elegant, bewitching and altogether mesmerising – ‘Ofni’ is simply gorgeous.
Listen to ‘Ofni’ below now and keep an eye out for Cotton Wolf’s new record on October 4th.
