Wolf Ram Heart

Wolf Ram Heart

Wolf Ram Heart is an American pop group whose members are split between the Appalachian foothills of southeastern Ohio and the urban metropolis of Columbus. This is a band bent on marrying art with popular music. Retro-futuristic best defines their sound that straddles neo-psychedelia and dark art synthesizer pop. The music is an all encompassing hybrid of pop's faded echoing sensibilities, molded into a modern space, and created in a sound that allows these hauntings to occur and transform.

Influences ranging anywhere from late era Beatles, to the early wall of sound productions of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson, to the ambient solo outings of Brian Eno or the dark pop moments of the Cure and Echo and the Bunnymen, the group seamlessly connects a bridge from the past to a future era via late-‘80s/early-‘90s 4AD and Creation Records. The band's music at times reflects these heavily layered moments and deceptively complex melodies which are held together with a string of mood and space, sewn into a beautiful and warm patchwork of something quite new.

Wolf Ram Hearts' debut album, Betrayal of Hearts was recorded over a span of a year on the group’s eight-acre rural farm set amidst dark densely wooded hollows and the clunking buggies of the Amish. The influences of these surroundings can be found stitched throughout the fabric of the group’s songs. The album was mastered by Brian Lucey, known for his work with the Black Keys, Tennis and David Lynch.
