Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Watching Wolves. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their powerful sound.
A beautiful powerful and modern sound is what this Australian band offers us.
A music that as a compositional approach reminded me in some passages Linkin Park and in others the Foo Fighters with the addition of a bit of screamo that never hurts.
We are faced with excellent musicians and we feel that these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to reach such an enviable sound understanding.
The songs are well thought out and with continuous twists and harmonic variations, they manage to entertain the listener from the first to the last second.
A band to keep an eye on because they seem to have clear ideas on how to present themselves to the masses around the world.
Mayflower is Watching Wolves’ Single Out Now!
Powerful and Epic!
Watching Wolves draw their inspiration from bands that are known for their high-energy live shows, think Nothing But Thieves, Polaris, Trophy Eyes and Bring Me The Horizon. Originally as a three-piece, the band was deeply rooted in a rockabilly-punk style similar to Australia’s own The Living End, but as their front man, vocalist and guitarist Reid Brownhill’s unique perspective and song craft have developed, Watching Wolves began to form a sound that was uniquely their own, sourcing inspiration and influence from a variety of artists & genres.
Their songs have begun to draw on a story telling feel that reminisces and laments over all of life’s beauties & tragedies. With the release of their last three singles – ‘Vitals’, ‘Heart In A Hurricane’ & ‘Like Lights’, Watching Wolves showcased this newly inspired sound where rockabilly-punk quickly transformed into harder hitting, higher energy & heavier riffs. Watching Wolves continue to find inspiration from artists such as Nothing But Thieves, Polaris, Trophy Eyes, Bring Me The Horizon, Northlane, Architects and more recently Thornhill.
