Sheep, Dog & Wolf Unveils Single 'Periphescence'

Sheep, Dog & Wolf re-emerged in late October with his first release since 2013's debut long player Egospect, and Daniel McBride has been steadily racking up the tunes since then in the lead-up to his forthcoming second album Two-Minds. Assuredly blending elements of folk, chamber pop and even a smidgen of math-rock into his latest creation, the Tāmaki Makaurau-based songwriter's new song ‘Periphescence’ (named after a word he found in novelist Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex) sounds lush and perhaps deceptively feather-light, as McBride's vividly poetic lyrics float along like a warm summer breeze. Written "during a period of chronic physical and mental illness", Sheep, Dog & Wolf's new album represents an auspicious return for the Tui award-winning artist, who states: "I still see Two-Minds as a positive statement — it's about recovery as much as it is about illness, and about the shafts of light that could shine through even in the depths of it."

'Two-Minds' releases on Friday 9th April via Aphrodite.
