Patrick Wolf returned from a decade hiatus at the end of last year with his track ‘Enter the Day’. This week, ‘Nowhere Game’ became the second track of his forthcoming EP ‘The Night Safari’ to be released. Whereas ‘Enter the Day’ is a folk-tinged piano and bowed psaltery led musing about how to get up each day and enter a strange world, ‘Nowhere Game’ harks to the more electronic, pacey and string-drenched number. Both have big moments and recall different ends of Patrick Wolf’s musical spectrum.
Interestingly, the violin and viola sections of ‘Nowhere Game’ were the first that Patrick had played since his first two albums. On speaking about this Patrick says the song is proof to himself that he was breaking his own vicious cycles and getting back to his craft again. I am of the belief Patrick Wolf is one of the UK’s finest songwriters and it is fantastic to have his music back again.
Enjoy the music video for ‘Nowhere Game’ below, the single is out now. For more information about Patrick Wolf, ‘The Night Safari’ EP (due for release 14th April) and his UK tour, visit Patrick Wolf’s linktree.
