Proud of their heritage, both musical and cultural, Wolf People's vision faithfully reflects the myriad environments the Jagjaguwar-signed group move between - the British countryside and various urban centres (Bedford, London and North Yorkshire) -- while offering a universally appreciable set of songs for this age or any other. Recorded in a converted chicken barn on the grounds of a 17th century Welsh mansion, their debut album 'Steeple' represents the emergence of a fully fledged band from the fragmented, haunted bedroom meanderings of their 'Tidings' singles compilation while maintaining its predecessor's arabesque electric guitars, groove-laden drums and ethereal vocals. 'Steeple' captures a band in metamorphosis, bridging frontman Jack Sharp's earlier solo efforts and the speaker-shearing attack developed in concert over the past four years. Now an accomplished live unit, the quartet have shared stages with the likes of Black Mountain, The Besnard Lakes, Dinosaur Jr, Dungen, Endless Boogie and Wooden Shjips. Wolf People are Jack Sharp (vocals/guitar), Joe Hollick (guitar), Dan Davies (bass/vocals) and Tom Watt (drums). Selected Press: "Time-travelling young people channel the sounds of a 1973 biker blues festival, with a hairy set of acid-metal-folk that transcends its record-collector's-fantasy origins." - Stewart Lee in The Sunday Times, #7 leftfield album of 2010 "An exciting, evocative album." - Will Hodginkson in MOJO, plus full page rising feature and live review "One of the towering highlights of 2010." - BBC "A UK version of White Denim." - NME "The UK's answer to Black Mountain." - Uncut "All hail the new kings of English psyche-folk... If Robert Plant wants to know how to reconcile his rootsy leanings with dignified and intelligent rock music, Wolf People have drawn him a map." - Classic Rock, #31 albums of 2010 "Deftly weaving a path around such heavyweight markers as Cream, Pentangle, Fairport Convention and Can, Wolf People's fine debut both pays respect to their English folk heritage and underlines their riff-stacked, contemporary affiliations." - Time Out "Rock is dead? Give over. Lupine Brits revive strains of folk-blues-metal last heard in 1972." - The Independent "Old-school prog inflected with enough vintage folk and rock to keep it cool." - Lauren Laverne in Grazia "Wolf People live in a canyon made of brown rock and they will whip your whiny, ballbearing-bottomed lily-livers into next Tuesday." - Drowned in Sound single of the week (Silbury Sands)
