Last month, Athens, GA-based musician and poet Claire Cronin announced her new album, Big Dread Moon, with the haunting and impressive “Tourniquet.” She recently shared a second track from the album, “Wolfman,” which sounds like an otherworldly fable, punctuated by strings and a dry acoustic guitar. At its center is a werewolf, a constant threat and release that follows Cronin through the woods. “A wolf to knight me with a true set of fangs,” she sings. “I left all my trouble in this way,” an escape no less barbaric than any other.
