Wolfgang Vanwymeersch also called WOLF here and there, is the driving
sound-exploring force behind Belgian post-punk noiseniks Elefant and
he was the flamboyant guitarist of former power-pop rockers The Van Jets.

During these once-in-a-lifetime pandemic times, he went into quarantine in his
caravan and let the muse do its work. He dived into the sonic space somewhere
between Elefant and The Van Jets, where daydreamers such as Matt Berninger
from The National and troubadour Devendra Banhart wander around too, for
his first affecting solo effort.

The result is moody beauty NOT TO. Melancholia at its starry-eyed synth-pop best.
I know Wolf for a long time, but I don’t know him. Yet I have the strong feeling he’s
a romantic at heart who’s sanely obsessed with creating music, playing music, and enjoying music, if possible all at the same time.

Dim the lights, sit down, lean back and let Not To into your soul…
