Wind in the wires
Its the sigh of wild electricity
Im on the edge of a cliff
Surpassing -Comfort and Security
The title track from Patrick Wolfs critically-acclaimed second album is, says Patrick, a love song to electricity. A standout album track, this song evokes wild and beautiful images of a wet, windy evening walk along the dangerous cliff-top paths of West Cornwall. With the songs roots firmly planted in the English folk tradition and its production bringing us right up to the modern day and beyond with a deep driving beat. Wind in the Wires is a timeless ballad sung from the heart.
But see her water break
Rain falling to the sea
Into a granite wave
A unit -A family
In self-sufficient mode, Patrick played, produced and performed all the instruments on the song except for a clarinet improvisation from his father, Derek Apps, signifying a return to family and belonging after a turbulent adolescence.
A music video has been directed by acclaimed photographer Toyin. This collaboration between Patrick and Toyin has created something truly breathtaking. Deciding to represent the vulnerable, bare wires of the lyrics and song through exposed flesh, salt water, nocturnal cliff walking and lightning, the video is the perfect match to the vulnerable beauty of Wind in the Wires.
The single comes in both CD and 7 single formats, both with different covers (CD cover displayed). Tracklisting differs between CD and vinyl. The B side for the CD will be two previously unreleased tracks, Souvenirs and Godrevy Point. The 7 b-side will be Ignis Fatuus, a piece composed for four violas at different tunings to be played at 33rpm. In memory of "the lady with the lantern" in Phillack, West
