'Hunting Little Songs' is the debut EP of alt-folk artist You Are Wolf.

‘The delivery is in the style of a beat poet lost in the renaissance period with no possessions and a distant memory of hearing Bjork’s ‘Medulla’… The depth of the imagery You Are Wolf conjures up is magical and macabre, it is a joy to get absorbed in the eerie storytelling… ‘Hunting Little Songs’ is totally compelling, an absolute gem for listeners feeling jaded and world weary, it will feel like an invigorating breath of fresh air’ THE EAR HORN

‘unfeasibly wonderful’ BBC Radio 3

‘I’m so excited about this EP… I haven’t heard anything like this in a long, long time’ BBC 6Music

‘Inventive, creepy, gorgeous’ The Other Woman, Resonance FM

”Hunting Little Songs’ is an innovative journey through leftfield folk, taking stops in beat-generation fuelled lyricism and menacing composition’ shout4music.com

‘Distinctive, ambitious music… dense, sinister little packages (that) echo the experimental Finnish folkstress Islaja and The Marble Index, and the sepulchral solo work by ex-Velvet Underground muse Nico.’ Contact Music

Track Name: trainsong
the sun sits in its swing
waiting for the night to begin
a fat apple, drunk on itself
dribbling cider with each rope-twang

it's turning, drawing in
opening out, flowering

a noise like a twig crack
and the rope snaps
the sun gets snagged on a bridge
goldengreening everything
and there's a hush like nothing

there's a cloud in the sky like the echo of a gun
there's a woodpigeon on a wire
pylons locked in a stand-off
fingernails dragged through the fields
and the sky's knifed a thousand times
and bleeding through the eyes

and the white russian moon
is a gangster in the corner
