A new horror film “The Unfamiliar” — is coming out soon and is already getting rave reviews — and to accompany the film is a title track written by the London-based Pretoria, South African singer-songwriter ANNA WOLF with The Stereophonics drummer & artistic music producer POP MORRISON.
The song’s shaky style, contrasted with a hesitantly strumming acoustic guitar, brings wrinkled lines peppered with torment, and squeezed across uneasy heads of loose skin.
The effect is like contemplating a bunch of ghastly sentiments wrapped in a basket and trimmed for sacrificial burning.
The voice trembles like a glass plate on ice while the rhythms droop and decay like overbalanced olivewood mementos.
This is as shivery cold as it is bewitching.
