Wolf Prize – “Come Home” (First Listen)

Tori Roggeman, Marisa DeMeglio, and Amber Elliot met while volunteering at a rock ‘n’ roll camp for girls and now comprise the Los Angeles ambient synth group Wolf Prize. Their newest track “Come Home” washes over you like a song by the xx. Roggeman’s voice is as ethereal as Romy Madley Croft’s, and she perhaps even has a better range. You can also hear Wolf Prize’s stated influences Portishead, Led Zeppelin, and Justin Vernon in the haunting, understated track. Here’s a statement from the band:

“Come Home” was recorded live in the studio in one take. The three of us like complex musical arrangements but ultimately our music is governed by emotion, both in how we feel as we’re making the song, and also in what we want the experience to be for the listener. We’re building the box in which the listener can place their feelings into. We want to be sonically rich, yet minimal. Come Home is an example of how we create a sonically rich space with very few layers. It reflects us as a band: every instrument carries weight, compositionally. Nothing gets buried.

Ultimately, we just want to soundtrack David Lynch’s dreams.
