The Ghost Wolves / Press

“The Ghost Wolves, a stripped-down guitar/drums duo from Austin, Texas, have a feral take on transgressive rock ‘n’ roll. Carley Wolf works the distorto strings and Jonathan Konya pounds away at the skins, equal parts garage-a-billy and blues a la howling canine. They even have the dog to prove it: Carley’s father began breeding wolf hybrids more than 30 years ago, and a pet on the head of Winter, a 125-pound Arctic mixed breed that travels with them, shows that their pack is not only loyal but capable of a good nuzzle in the muzzle. One particular slide solo of Carley’s from their recent SXSW show scratched me behind the ears, wagged my tail, and made me chase a ball. The pair tour relentlessly, showing a joy in the turn-it-up that evokes the visceral virtues of rock at its most raw and elemental: “Curl Up and Dye,” the flat-out bash of “Snake and Jake Shake,” the hypnotic “First Love.” Hell, I even bought the T-shirt.”

"When the Austin band finally let us off the hook and left the stage, the only thing I could think of was the fact that I wanted more!"

The Loop Scoop

“The Ghost Wolves raised brows, putting on a great power duo performance”

Austin Town Hall

“From the opening, bluegrass twang of ‘Gonna Live’, to the gorgeous live recording of ‘First Love’, it is clear that the duo’s relentless gigging – as well as their strong musical heritage – has produced a collection of tracks that is both exhilarating and infectious.”

Chybucca Sounds - UK

“The Ghost Wolves, a young Texas drums-and-guitar duo, made a mighty punk-rock noise in a powerful opener. Carley Wolf’s helium-chirp voice added irony to grown-up lyrics of loss and disillusionment in the doleful blues “First Love” from their “In Ya Neck” debut album, while her jolting, feedback-drenched guitar channeled George Thorogood jamming with the Ramones and her drumming partner Jonny clattered its rattly three-beat. In “The Snake and Jake Shake” from the same album, they paid rocking tribute to a New Orleans bar I happen to know is dark but fun, and their music fit that same description. Their spunky energy engaged the crowd so well they whipped up a noisy singalong in “Gonna Live,” defiant-anthem lead track from “In Ya Neck.””

"While they each have their own impressive musical resumes, together they are an otherworldly presence."

KUT- Austin

“Carley Wolf; A musical jewel in wolf's clothing. Using genres such as folk, rock, and bluegrass, Wolf sings with the chops of an old gypsy soul.”
