Wolf Parade's new EP is mostly likely one of the most highly anticipated releases of this year, in light of the band's 2010 hiatus and the buzz surrounding the imminent new release in previous months.


The Canadian indie rock band regrouped with a hands-on attitude: the new release is simply titled “EP4,” confirming the band’s refreshing back-to-basics approach.


Although this is a long-awaited return to the music scene, there's a very reassuring absence of self-celebration and complete lack of nostalgia for a band that is here to move forward instead of looking back.


The EP barely features 12 minutes of music, but the brevity of this release is one of its most striking features. This is a collection of energetic, direct and spontaneous songs that feel vibrant and inspired, much like the live shows of the band. The raw and seamless nature of this track shine a very positive light on the band’s reunion: it feels like these songs were born out of a genuine creative urgency, rather than on the need to collect a few paychecks from tour headlines and reunion shows.


EP4 can either be seen as a continuation of the Wolf Parade saga, or as a new blank slate: there are many possibilities from here on out.
