A former member of noughties Glaswegian rock band The Blimp, JD Allan is a musician and singer-songwriter who concocts multifarious alt pop and rock with a DIY ethic. His latest release, “The Wolf”, is the debut for new independent Glasgow label Fast Static Records.
For their debut release Fast Static wanted to do something a little different, and “The Wolf” certainly is that. Coming in at just over 2 minutes “The Wolf” is a blistering riff-driven blast of lyricless rock. Recorded and co-produced by Bal Cooke (V-Twin, The Pastels) and mastered by Mike Marsh (Chemical Brothers, U2, Bjork) the track also features former Cosmic Rough Riders Mark Brown and James Clifford (on drums and bass respectively).
It’s definitely a slightly unusual, though catchy, track and it works well with the video which you can watch below. It’s available on a wealth of online sites – links below – as well as Fast Static’s Soundcloud.
