Alex Wolff is busy. Aside from being photographed in New York for the cover of our next print issue – due out in January at the start of London Fashion Week Men’s – he and his older brother Nat are releasing their latest EP, Public Places.
Can there be too much talent in one family? It’s definitely a possibility with the Wolff brothers. Sons of jazz musician and producer father, Michael Wolff, and actress mother, Polly Draper, the duo (aged 21 and 19) have been creating music professionally for nearly a decade, first as The Naked Brothers Band, which was subsequently a television series on America’s Nickelodeon, and now as Nat & Alex Wolff. They have recorded four full-length albums with inspiration reaching far and wide from the Beatles to The Beach Boys, and on Public Places – a step up to a more developed sound – we’re hearing a little 1970’s Bee Gees.
Straddling the worlds of music and entertainment, it’s safe to say that these boys have the inside track on what works. Their melodic pop with catchy choruses means the Wolffs are a formidable force of sound, and let’s face it, they have the hair for stage success.
Their new eight-track EP, Public Places will be available from the 16th of December and you can pre-order now. The enviably capable pair not only wrote the songs, they play a variety of the instruments themselves including guitar, drums and keyboard.
Candid cover star, Alex wrote the first single Rollin’ Around, which starts with a slow piano intro and moves into a laidback disco beat, and Nat wrote the title track Public Places – an alternative pop offering that wouldn’t be out of place scored into one of their films.
Pre-order the new issue of Candid Magazine where a seven-page interview and fashion editorial starring Alex Wolff awaits. It will be on sale globally through top-tier bookstores, newsagents and specialty stores in the New Year.
