For those seeking some peaceful bliss amongst life’s chaos, Tayrona by Mt. Wolf may be your next favorite song.
The track exudes a refreshing indie pop vibe because of the airy, beautiful vocals from Tamsin Wilson of the band Wilsen. The vocals create a beautiful, haunting effect that echoes like sunshine seems to on a beautiful summer morning. The song has a mystical feel, but remains a transparent song from its clear use of guitar and violin. The band describes the song as “somewhat like floating in a daydream as the hazy, layered soundscape encapsulates you.”
This is Mt. Wolf's first release in a few years as they took a hiatus. Before their break, they became a popular act in the UK, topping Hype Machine’s charts and selling out headlining shows in London. Both of their albums, Red and Aetherlight, are very successful, garnering hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify. They’ve performed at famous festivals such as SXSW and Glastonbury and did a headlining tour of America, the UK, and Europe
