Formed in Sweden and inspired by the Western film scores of Ennio Morricone, Stranded Mermaid deliver soft, strange folk music that sound like First Aid Kit conducting a seance. “In the Jaws of the Wolf” winds its way slowly through its four minutes. Louise Lindenger’s voice curls like smoke in the night sky, spiraling between brittle banjo and steady, hypnotic rhythms. The song plays out like some eerie fever dream — fire on the horizon, wolves on the prowl.
