Teesside buddies Dressed Like Wolves and Nel Unlit have teamed up to release their new singles together as a split 7”.

This release switches things up quite a bit from Nel Unlit’s usual fantasy neo-folk work, creating intricate soundscapes for Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel Sandman. A first for the collaborative nine-piece, Nel Unlit has delved into the autobiographical with this love letter to partners everywhere in the emotional Six Nights. A smidgen of a capella and bright acoustics make for a truly moving spectacle of feelings.

Dressed Like Wolves meanwhile are getting in on this gratitude inspired action with their own companion single, Big Pool, recorded as part of a campaign to help out live music venues which have suffered since the pandemic, namely Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Social Club (where I got a free Jammy Dodger on the door the first time I went there, true fact). The unsuspecting pub has been the site of many a Teesside band cutting their teeth on its compact stage. Big Pool adds to the nostalgia for those simple, communal times with gentle indie beats best suited to the breaks between bands spent by the bar. Both tracks are doing their own thing, but both are a love letter in their own way; that’s why this move makes total sense.

Dressed Like Wolves/Nel Unlit release Six Nights/Big Pool on 26th March
