Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Carley Wolf makes her debut with a confident, eclectic set that’s likely to attract many fans.

Opener Gypsy Soul Blues is raucous and fun, Wolf’s vocals set against a cute backing.

Run into the Sun has a sweet melody and a vocal that rapidly makes itself known.

Funeral Pyre is dark and dramatic in a Marissa Nadler way. It’s hushed rather than shouted, but the tension’s there and the sadness palpable.

Whole Hearted Lover is upbeat and lovely and shows off Wolf’s skills at their best.

Her debut’s a real treat.
