In the midst of producing the album, Crywolf was forced to choose a pause just after getting an whole album’s well worth of audio and more than $5,000 truly worth of equipment stolen even though overseas in Chile. Persevering via the heartbreak, Crywolf headed to Patagonia, in which he started to generate in a little picket cabin in the Huilo Huilo rainforest, a place rumored to be haunted with thousands of misplaced souls. Again in the US, Crywolf continued his musical journey by viewing Twin Peaks, the Blue Ridge mountains, Reno, and the forests of Vancouver. His fascination with the mysterious has been a driving drive behind his inventive id. Crywolf phone calls this period of time of creating and touring his ‚quarter daily life crisis‘ and refers to himself for the duration of this time as a „widow,“ a word related with excellent soreness and reduction. Even with the difficulties he ran into while overseas, he persevered and ongoing to make some of his most attractive to date.
Crywolf worries the notion that an artist should fit into any one style. He ruthlessly colors exterior of the lines, making an distinctive and usually indefinable sound. With hundreds of thousands of streams throughout his discography and push praise from the likes of The FADER, Consequence of Audio, Alternate Push, and Intricate, widow [OBLIVIØN Pt. I] is confident to be a different significantly-beloved release from Crywolf.

„widow [OBLIVIØN Pt. I]is my dive into my unconscious self. A narrow-beamed flashlight illuminating creatures on the sea flooring… a bizarre combination of dread and familiarity. I sincerely feel it is my most sincere operate still. I’m not hoping to be pretty anymore.
I drop a reasonable share of blood, sweat, and tears about the two years it took to make this album… and I also shed parts of myself. To be sincere, I barely realize the fragmented figure Widow signifies. The first 50 % of the OBLIVIØN series is the only relic I have to keep in mind him by. Mangled, but poignant. A sort of exuvium, left powering to remind me in which I arrived from, and provide a blueprint for what lays in advance.“
