In the video for her song “Animal Fear”, English musician Marika Hackman turns into a wolfman (wolf-woman, don’t be normative!) style werewolf and attacks her band. Or does she?
“Animal Fear” is the first single off her debut album “We Slept at Last”, which comes out later this month. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes. A recent interview with When The Gramophone Rings describes her music as an infusion of “traditionally winding melodies with leftfield production and a subtly accented vocal”. That seems apt to me – this song was very dreamy and melancholy, making the sudden wolf-out surprising after Hackman’s deadpan performance.
