Ned Mortimer and Vedantha Kumar, aka August and After, have been joined by Jordan Bergmans on viola, and the trio are weaving together their voices and guitars to make the delicate and gentle folk that has been characteristic of the band since their inception, with a new sparkle coming from the member. New single Wolves is a howling belter, dense and immediate layers of brewing emotion building up from the sparce and intimate intro. The strings work is thick with sensual movement, and the guitar work plucked and precise. Taken from forthcoming debut album Embers it is an excellent reintroduction to a band honing their craft and forming their character with a vulnerable strength.
