7 track ep ‘brumalia’ translates as “festival of the shortest day” & accordingly, this is the sound of mr wolf being more dark & wintery in contrast to his recent bright, sunny pop flambouyance.
This set of new songs were written, produced & programmed by Patrick this autumn (2011), returning to The Pool studios on Bermondsey Street & his home studio. The artwork for the EP was shot by Patti Smith. “These are two photos Patti took of me on Cooden Beach on a freezing windy Winter day earlier this year the day after I played harp & viola for her at the De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill). To me the photos sum up the bleakness & melancholy of England in the Winter months, which was something that inspired the choice of songs on this EP”.
