Harm Wülf (G. Hirsch of Blacklisted) has premiered his sophomore album Hijrah in its entirety prior to its August 26th street date. Hijrah is inspired by a range of artists from the tranquil resonance of Low, to the rhythmic acoustic strumming of Strength Through Joy, the ascending power of Angels Of Light, even calling to the insular/grotesque Americana of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, etc.. At most times his songs are sparse and austere and at others apocalyptically orchestrated. Check out Hijrah along with a new interview with G. Hirsch on Bandcamp Daily.
On his debut as Harm Wülf (Deathwish, 2013), G.’s songs were primarily built on the singer/songwriter experience, but Hijrah introduces a wash of stark instrumentation with Jon Nean of Blacklisted on Bass and engineer Arthur Rizk (Inquisition, Prurient) on percussion. Together they have created a dark and emotional atmosphere that is more fully realized than ever before.
