How is it that more than half of all Wolf People songs are compared to Jethro Tull, this time even though they don't use the flute at all? It must be this particular groove, the heartbeat of most Welsh songs. And the medieval singing of the bard and guitarist Jack Sharp. Folkrock without folk instruments, but with a huge dose of hippie spirit and psychedelic vibes characterizes the current album. The young musicians live the spirit of the folk- and bluesrock-oriented sixties/seventies bands so much that they have even moved the recordings this time to a remote house in the Yorkshire Dales. As already announced after the appearance of the predecessor "Steeples", Jack Sharp tells a more abstract story this time, reports about dreamlike spiritual experiences. However, he doesn't completely renounce his fascination for dark ballads about murderers and thieves, but tells in "Thief" the fate of a robber who has been caught.
