The Accidental - There Were Wolves

In the world of nu-folk, The Accidental may be considered something of a super group. Assembled for There Were Wolves are members of The Memory Band, Tunng and The Bicycle Thieves, plus singer-songwriter Liam Bailey. And that's without listing those with only guest status.

The Accidental come across like a less wonky Tunng; the adhesion to acoustic is there, but those cranky, inventive rhythms are only ever hinted at. Knock Knock is spookily atmospheric, recent single, Wolves, has intriguing lyrics, using a menacing metaphor for blokes on the pull, and Time and Space sounds like a campfire sing-a-long. There Were Wolves has some nice touches, but, determinedly low-key, it might fall short of reeling you in.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
