25 November 2021

Who: The maestro of Belgian post-punk
crusaders Elefant and the guitarist of former
power-pop rockers The Van Jets

With 5-track EP called Songs Of Light And Shade, his first solo
work, Wolf Vanwymeersch shows his high-quality proficiency as
a solo singer-songwriter (mind you, he wrote and sang series of
striking songs before for the bands he was/is involved with).

He went into quarantine in his caravan during the 2020 lockdown
and let the muse do its work. He went on a journey into the sonic
space where mixed-emotions dreamers such as The National‘s voice
Matt Berninger and troubadour Devendra Banhart also have a caravan.
Listen to Queen Of Mine, Friendly Is Better and Not To and you will
experience what my ears experienced.

Opening track Understand, with its buoyant pace, is the only upbeat song here
while Fall From Grace differs from the other pieces, with its trippy synth glimmer.
Notable too are the subtle, yet rich orchestrations and arrangements of the whole extended play.

As I said before WOLF is a romantic at heart.
He wanders from daylight to twilight and back.

Here’s why and how…
