American Wolf – “Not My Life”


“Not My Life” is another stellar success from American Wolf, the Chicago-based artist who impressed with lush electro-pop gem “Lust For Loss” in October. Fully embracing a hazy, chillwave aesthetic, “Not My Life” rides on ethereal, yearning vocals accompanied by synths on both the effervescent and bass-forward ends of the spectrum, tonally. The verses float serenely to an even more tranquil bridge just after the one-minute mark, where the rhythms subside somewhat to make way for the hypnotic, successful conclusion. This is a track that’s quite easy to get lost in, as has been the case with American Wolf releases thus far.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush Indie Electronic.
