“Wind in the Wires” is the second album from London’s Patrick Wolf and follows the critically acclaimed "Lycanthropy" which has steadily won hearts and minds across the globe throughout 2003-4.

Thematically this is an album about the search for personal liberty in an age of stagnancy and lack of invention. From the opening epic “The Libertine” with its driving beat and troubadour strings to the minimalist plucked piano and soprano ukulele of “The Railway House”, the whole album encompasses a real sense of breaking free and is truly an original piece of work.

The sound and feel is a great step forward from his debut and solidifies a more extended style both vocally and musically for young Patrick (now 21 years old). On this LP, he plays all instruments (bar a contribution from his father) and sings all vocals (bar a contribution from his sister on “Teignmouth”) on viola, violin, baritone and soprano ukelele, piano and reed organ amongst other things. All songs are performed, produced, programmed and arranged by Wolf himself.

Patrick’s solo live performances have continued to develop and astound audiences around the world with tours across the US, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy. He has received many excellent reviews for his festival performances at Benicassim (Spain), Arvika (Sweden), Bad Bonn (Switzerland), London Calling (Netherlands), Domino (Belgium), and Popkomm (Germany). Tours to support this LP around the world to be announced shortly.

“Wind in the Wires” is a record that will not only mean a lot to existing Patrick Wolf fans but will without a doubt win over a whole new audience with its raw passion, full-blooded lyrics and haunting arrangements and melodies.
