AUDIO: Old Wolves – “Rest Now in Nearing Dawn”
Blues folk project Old Wolves has returned with a new EP. It’s five tracks, and each song is embellished with field recordings of birds singing and bugs buzzing for a tranquil touch. These songs contain themes of nature, what once was, running away, and living with bitterness but trying to find peace. Joe Zumpano’s rich voice connects melancholic conviction with loving regard, which is an optimal juxtaposition as “Rest Now in Nearing Dawn” grapples with reconciling the past with the present.
