Patrick Wolf – The Night Safari EP

A welcome return from Mr Wolf, leaving the world ready for more.

Label: Apport
Released: 14th April 2023

Patrick Wolf is a name nearly forgotten to the mists of time by the virtue that it’s been over 10 years since his last album. But, he is finally ready to return from his self-imposed exile with his new EP ‘The Night Safari’, the first part of his story of his time away.

Musically, it takes the hallmarks of Patrick’s writing with his lovely vocals (such as on the title-track) while also updating the others, like with ‘Nowhere Game’ with its frantic drums reminiscent of the blood beat indie scene Wolf arose from. 

There are some moments of madness where Wolf struggles to avoid straying into full self-indulgence, but he just about manages it such as on the 7 and half minute ‘Dodona’.

It is, however, a welcome return from Mr Wolf leaving the world ready for more.
