Dark Pop (Columbus, Ohio)
Wolf Ram Heart, is making some serious inroads in the wider world. The band’s debut recording, the lush and moody Betrayal of Hearts, is a prime exhibit of James’ love of Psychedelic Pop and Spectorish wall of sound production techniques, not to mention a dark and dreamy songwriting streak. Wolf Ram Heart’s greatest achievement is in weaving together retro sound and contemporary energy and attitude, evidenced by Betrayal of Hearts hitting the CMJ Radio 200 chart upon release in April and garnering support from bloggers everywhere.
