Deriving his moniker from Jeff Buckley’s place of death in Memphis, Tennessee, Manchester, UK’s Wolf River Harbor quietly issued his debut single, “I Just Need Time.”
Finger-picked guitar gives way to a brief squall of electric flurry with fallible multi-tracked vocals at once becoming harmonious. Assembling elements of Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear and the Shins, Wolf River Harbor offers nothing wholly original, making the song all the better for it. In a case of substance over style, the baroque folk of “I Just Need Time” is breathtakingly fresh, striking a vein of pathos.
