Not many people can create and perform this music style, some kind of dark-pop with a dreamy atmosphere (yes, it sounds crazy and maybe ambiguous), like Oh Land, CocoRosie, MS MR or London Grammar, but young producer Natalie Gould seems to defy this tendency. Wolves is that kind of song that can bring many different emotions and so apart from each other, it’s vast and profound and at the same time is claustrophobic, like a never-ending run into the woods.
The way Jessica sings, evocating the wolves she has inside her while she extols the feeling of depression and overthinking. Her voice can be sweet and shimmering, but as the instrumental grows and asks for power, Casinelli turns it into a sharp yet melodic vocal. At the same time, the landscape environment, created by cicadas and a marimba pad marks the steps of this run.
Natalie wrote this song in collaboration with Jessica to talk about their deepest feelings and what could’ve been an abstract song, apparently became one with a strong message and raw emotions that a lot of people felt at least once. “Turn away from society which would keep me in my place” follows the runaway with the wolves and expresses perfectly the ultimate feeling depressed people may have.
Nevertheless, this track by itself is incredibly relaxing, only by its melody driven by a gorgeous drum-set and a “symphony” of alternative sonorities brought by synths and electric guitars.
