For those comfortable with the absence of silence, this new single from electronic musician and producer Alek Fin will fit well into your mp3 catalog. “Waiting Like A Wolf” is haunting yet familiar, like something that could have appeared as a bonus track on Thom Yorke’s stellar solo album The Eraser. Sample this transfixing work of art below and prepare for Fin’s debut EP, Mull, coming December 1st.
