Joana And The Wolf slate new single ‘Hide Me’ for May

Joana and The Wolf are a London based four-piece fronted by Lithuanian singer-songwriter Joana Glaza. They release their incredible new single ‘Hide Me’ on 03/05/11, beautifully produced by Paris based Jerome Pigeon aka Gringo Da Parada.

The story begins several years ago.  A girl with a penchant for Russian folk and Maria Callas comes to London, falls in love with rock – her forbidden fruit, the music that was banned in the East – embraces it with the passion of first love and manages to find three musical soul mates to join her on a sonic journey. Since then they have released a string of critically lauded singles, toured across Europe and never looked back.

Recorded at the renowned Fortress Studios in London, ‘Hide Me’ is a powerful statement of intent. From the start of the track the stripped back riff punctuates the mesmerizing inflection in Joana’s voice. Layered guitars build and sit perfectly over the driving beat whilst clever use of delay and a huge vocal delivery explode into an anthemic finale. On the flip ‘Vagabond Song’ with its folk tinged ethereal vibe shines a different light on the band. The luscious sound-scape strikes a cinematic counterpoint to ‘Hide Me’ whilst giving a nod to Joana’s eastern folk roots.

Having already wowed festival audiences across Europe including Lovebox, Waterpop (Holland), Transmusicales (France), Stop Making Sense (Croatia), Bestival, The Big Chill, The Great Escape and Camden Crawl plus an NME headline show at London’s KOKO,  it’s clear that 2011 is going to be a big year for Joana and The Wolf.
