Hamburg is a city with a rich musical heritage, it’s the second city that comes to mind when discussing The Beatles – that’s no mean feat. This history means it’s of no surprise that Mt. Wolf have decided to use the city’s name as a song title. The song in question does indeed capture the vibrance of Hamburg and is a musical offering that holds up to the high standards set by Hamburg’s reputation.
Sweet vocals floats above a nest of intertwining instruments that feel sturdier than the Berlin Wa… Oh. Never mind. Whilst there are plenty of intricate pieces of detail hidden throughout this song that will be a joy to discover on each further listen, it remains to be this hauntingly captivating vocal and the simple yet effective acoustic guitar that’ll capture your heart as they shine above the massing instruments, acting as a light through the darkness of the sound allowing you to hear more clearly than you ever have before.
What a truly beautiful work of art this is.
