Los Angeles native, Rey Villalobos, is the genius behind solo project House of Wolves. Did you know his last name, Villa-lobos actually translates to House of Wolves from Spanish? Hey, you learn something new everyday. Rey grew up as a classically trained pianist, recalling Chopin as his main musical influence which pushed him to create such utterly sincere and engaging music.
After a long day of running around, arguing with annoying people and drinking too much coffee this track is the perfect way to relax. Rey’s voice illustrates beautiful peaks of high notes and the hazy piano notes being played with a small glimmer of the tambourine are making my nerves calm down. The lyrics to the track are romantic but up for interpretation, maybe you’re in a place in your life where music like this will stop you in your tracks and make you stop for a second. After purchasing his EP, Fold In The Wind, I have become a huge fan. House of Wolves is currently on tour in Europe, but let’s hope he comes to the states. Grab your copy of his EP here.
