Introducing Wullae Wright
Wullae Wright is a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland. He writes, records and produces all his own music, since 1999. During this time he recorded 4 self-produced albums and 2 EPs. His albums vary quite a bit in style and genre – all from acoustic, electronic, industrial, dance, rock, indie to alternative.
His main musical influences are Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, Bloc Party and Martin Grech, but he has been influenced also by bands like Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Soulwax, Innerpartysystem, Elbow, Muse, Death from Above 1979, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, just to name a few. To be quite honest, when I first heard the song “Fight Or Flight”, his voice and the style of music (which is a cosmic disco) reminded me of Adam Lambert.
He recorded his first album, called “After. The. Rush. Hour’s. Gone”, back in 2005, and it was indie, rock oriented.
His next album “In Cloud Cuckooland” was a dark album, centered around psychology and dreams. Wullae described it as a deliberately harsh sounding album. I have to admit that most of the songs on the album are too depressing for me.
To go away from the dark sounds, he recorded an EP, named “Slowly Slowly Catchy Monkey”, which is the nearest to my musical taste. I specially liked a song “Whispers to the Heart”.
The year 2011 was very productive for him. He recorded a hard rock, dance, dubstep album “Anonymous”, an acoustic album “Opus. 1″ and 2 EPs – the piano-classical cut up “Overzealous Work Ethic” and electric “Under the Pyramids”.
At the moment he’s working on his 5th album, called “The Orange Line”. I already heard a few songs from the album. Some of them I like, some of them aren’t exactly to my musical taste. However, I’m wondering what the final product is going to sound like, but we’ll have to wait for it till the end of 2013. It currently sits as a 12 track unfinished album of acoustic, indie and rock songs.
