Martha Wainwright: Wolves (feat. Rufus Wainwright)

The Montreal singer’s expressively emotional vocals are neatly complemented by those of her famous brother on this new single.

Martha Wainwright: Wolves (feat. Rufus Wainwright)

By Kerry Doole

Martha Wainwright: Wolves - feat. Rufus Wainwright (Pheromone): It's been almost four years since Martha Wainwright released her critically acclaimed album Goodnight City. Her new single, Wolves, was recorded during the Goodnight City sessions but didn't make fit the final album sequence.


Thankfully, it sees the light of day now and is well worth the exposure. Her strong and emotionally expressive voice is showcased here, while the counterpoint vocals of brother Rufus add a pleasing contrast. Unorthodox vocal arrangements retain the listener's interest.

Hailed by many critics as her strongest album yet, Goodnight City featured original Wainwright compositions alongside tunes written by or with her friends and such noted songwriters as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, brother Rufus Wainwright, author Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.

A multi-faceted talent, Wainwright has also been acting (Aviator, Olive Kitteridge) and running Montreal cafe and music venue Ursa.  She is currently finishing up a book and getting ready to record another full-length album.

Most recently Wainwright treated fellow quarantined friends and neighbours in her Montreal neighbourhood with several balcony sing-alongs, organized by POP Montreal and Ursa. Of note: A GoFundMe campaign to support Ursa has been set up.
