Last friday at the Adelaide UniBar, we were treated to an absolutely gorgeous headline set from Adelaide legend, Timberwolf.
From the second he took the stage, Timberwolf invited the audience to become involved in the show, rocketing into an array of songs and sharing energy throughout the set. Of course, launching the 'Flux' EP meant that we got to hear a whole bunch of the new tracks off the EP, with 'Stranded' being our particular favourite.
The performance put on by Timberwolf and co was absolutely astounding, with the unique mix of instruments creating a powerful wall of sound. The overlaying of instruments was capped off by Timberwolf's vocals, which often accompanied a crescendo to create a hypnotic effect. (like a wolf howling, I suppose). These echoing, smooth vocals from the man himself were really as intense as they could be relaxing at times, leaving punters mesmerised. The humility and passion behind Timberwolf's work was clear throughout the show, often thanking each and everyone who helped to get him to where he is today.
After remarking how he's seen songs go from his bedroom to a live performance, we were overjoyed at how far he'd come. The feel of the venue shifted back and forth as the group went from slow somber tunes, to more upbeat tracks, yet all the while possessing a deep, heartfelt sense of emotion.
Toward the end of the set, TImberwolf's excitement and joy was palpable, with the crowd clearly loving it. His positive remark about Adelaide's capacity for producing quality music was fantastic to hear, which is what we're all about!
To be fair, we've just been given a new EP from Timberwolf... but after hearing a debut album is in the works, we're very excited. Overall Timberwolf's emotional involvement in his music is admirable, making for a truly moving live experience that we highly recommend seeing!
Timberwolf, we love ya, keep up the great work!
