Patrick Wolf's Overture


Well now. Patrick Wolf is the strange. At the same time, however, he's the awesome. It's intense without being loud or scary. He's got a Billy Idol-like voice going on, with moments of unexpected softness and some really engaging melodies. Behind that voice are layered string samples, industrial jolts and whistles, and a driving kick drum. It reminds me of some of the male-vocaled songs by Low, without the fuzzed out guitars. He basically sounds nothing like that picture up there. The opposite of that picture. And totally sweet and interesting.
