FRESH: ‘Supernatural’ – Wolfie

Wolfie goes “Supernatural”

Marking her long-awaited return, South London artist Wolfie now announces her forthcoming EP “All Souls”, with the release of her infectious lead single “Supernatural”. Pairing electronic production with sparse instrumentation, “Supernatural” sees Wolfie harness a spiritual R&B vibe that allows her delicate vocals to take centre stage. The track will be released on All Souls’ Day, a day in ancient years that was used for prayer and remembrance for all the souls that haven’t ascended to heaven.

“‘Supernatural’ follows an etheric love story with one partner haunting the other through visions and apparitions” Wolfie explains. “Whilst also suggesting the idea that ‘sixth senses’ and intuitive feelings are basic human instincts. I’ve always felt like ‘supernatural’ occurrences are a universal blip in another parallel of our world and that paranormal experiences are just residues of energy we can experience in different ways through these feelings and senses”.

The cryptic, psychedelic official video is centred around sensual dance routines and the exploration of the human body in its most primal form. “I had always envisioned portraying that our sixth senses and paranormal activity are just a part of the natural world” Wolfie reflects. “I wanted to convey this through the human body and different types of skeletal. SANDR helped birth this vision alongside Kamil who leads the video beautifully through contemporary expressionist dance. ‘Supernatural’ plays as a beautiful haunting with glitches of archetypes representing the natural aspect of our inherent intuitions and the equilibrium of physics vs psychic phenomena”.

First emerging onto the scene in 2015 with punchy debut single “I Be Ghost”, Wolfie has since garnered support from the likes of Pharrell Williams, Trever Nelson and Charlie Sloth, also supporting The Internet on their sold-out UK tour. She dropped her acclaimed debut EP “8 Ball” in 2016, with The Fader describing it as “as blissfully kicked-back as an afternoon spent blazing in the sunshine”. Following this, the project’s opening track “Obi Wan” was used as part of the soundtrack of critically acclaimed Netflix comedy-drama series Dear White People.

Meanwhile her follow-up six track EP “All Souls” is primed for release in the remaining months of 2020. The project pays homage to Wolfie’s Roma heritage, which heavily inspired All Souls sonically, evident in both instrumentation and her vocals throughout the EP. The first release from her hotly anticipated forthcoming project, “Supernatural” marks the next chapter in the story of Wolfie.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
