Timothy Wolf has arrived and his debut single ‘In Your Arms Again’ is a tender and warm echo back to the blues legends of yesteryear.
It’s a song that is carried by Wolf’s stratospheric falsetto, with chocolatey brass lacquering every word. ‘In Your Arms Again’ builds and builds, before unleashing into a huge finale.
The song was recorded at Bernard Fanning and Nick Didia’s Byron Bay studios, La Cueva, which Wolf described as a “special time away”.
“We didn’t know we were within the eye of the COVID-19 hurricane or that we’d head straight back into a gruelling stage 4 Melbourne lockdown,” he said.
“Timing came together for us perfectly as we were gifted the opportunity to hide away in the Byron Bay Hinterland, connect as the musical family we’d always seen the potential for and bring these songs to life.”
“The song comes from a dreamy, old soul, rosy-eyed state,” he explains of the song.
“I’m lucky enough for all of my grandparents to have had 50+ year marriages. This song highlights the commitment relationships like this take whilst also drawing from within my own rosy-eyed beginnings. There’s also a chance it might have come from one of the weddings I’ve played trying to support my original project.”
Wolf will be launching the single alongside his band The Howlers at a one-off show at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on Thursday, 6th May. Tickets available via the venue’s website.
