”The floor-shaking electronica of Dublin-based Cashel lads Paudie Bob and Kevin Gleeson, aka Ghosts, caught our ears last summer with spooky EP Judge. This time we’re swooning over an ambient garage number called ‘WLVS’, which hooked us not only for its subtle resemblance to Shola Ama-era Artful Dodger (to confirm, this is a very good thing) – but an animated music video featuring a pack of real wolves” -Celina Murphy, Hotpress Magazine (April 2013)
