Jake Houlsby: Howl
|Newcastle UK singer-songwriter Jake Houlsby has released his brand new single Howl, the first track taken from his Vondelpark EP out on 5th May.
Houlsby’s wonderfully crafted lyricism and haunting soundscapes are evident throughout this latest offering, with his individualistic blend of storytelling and influences of contemporaries such as Sufjan Stevens and Fleet Foxes shining through, adding a further layer of depth to his poignant sound.
Having already earned significant praise from the online tastemaker community as well as widespread airplay from the likes of Lauren Laverne and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, the North East native is sure to receive further critical acclaim following this latest release and will be making several festival appearances over the coming months.
