Stalking Horse came into being after the break up of main protagonist, Wu's, previous band This Et Al in late 2008. heading to the East Coast of England, recording began in earnest in august 2009 with producer James Kenosha at The Lodge, Bridlington. the result of these sessions was an album entitled 'Specters' and the Too Pure single, 'Heathen Head, Howling Heart'. Stalking Horse makes music to dream to. Music in which the listener can get lost and escape to places that would be missed without a keen weather eye on the horizon. Using a multitude of instrumentation including Chinese guitars, mandolins, pianos and ukuleles; stalking horse weaves musical patterns that stretch from the positive, up-tempo feelings on 'Heathen Head, Howling Heart' to the more disparate emotive niche carved out with the swirling 'Off Auto'. Whilst using a pallet that owes a nod in the direction of Warp Records and perhaps Thom Yorke, Stalking Horse is undeniably an individual creature with a sound of it's own. Maintaining a sense of song writing that is neither overly self indulgent or negligent of the artist's duty to be creative, Stalking Horse has succeeded in making music that can inspire us to greater things, as well as placate the ever present need to be relieved of the melee of the world around us.
