Sheep, Dog & Wolf Returns With Single / Video 'Cyclical'

2020 continues to serve up all sorts of surprises with today's welcome re-emergence of Sheep, Dog & Wolf, the project of Tāmaki Makaurau-based avant-pop polymath Daniel McBride. Lifting the lid on his first release since 2013's Tui-award winning debut album Egospect, McBride reveals new single 'Cyclical' via UK imprint Aphrodite, plus an evocative animated lyric video featuring semi-abstract ink drawings by live drummer Eddie Crawshaw. Sheep, Dog & Wolf makes quite the spectacular return with the sonically expressive, shapeshifting twists and turns of 'Cyclical', grappling with the mercurial nature of creation itself (in an artistic sense)...

"Cyclical is a map of the creative cycle. The initial stages, with ideas and sounds and words swirling without any structure; the moment that it all comes together for the first time, and starts to feel solid; the doubt and confusion that inevitably sets in as the creative flow stalls; the absolute ecstasy as it returns and everything falls into place; and the comedown afterwards, knowing that you'll never experience the piece in that same way again.” - Daniel McBride

'Cyclical' is out now via major streaming platforms via Aphrodite.
