NEW ARTIST FINDS: WOOLF AND THE WONDERSHOW
WOOLF AND THE WONDERSHOW is a brand new duo out of Los Angeles and their infectious indie pop dance-inducing sound is quickly gaining them a following. Producer/singer Christopher J. Baran and composer Benjamin J. Romans first grabbed our attention with their breakout track “Cloaked,” and we knew from then on we’d be totally hooked. I imagine this is what it would sound like if One Republic went on a mission to start a feel-good dance party that would attract both mainstream radio and festival-goers alike. Read on to discover your new indie pop addiction, WOOLF AND THE WONDERSHOW.
WOOLF AND THE WONDERSHOW - CLOAKED
“Cloaked” begins on an adorably flute-filled note that quickly morphs into an indie pop whirlwind of pulsating bass synths, bubbling electronics, and Baran’s sweeping vocals. The chorus first hits just before the 1:00 mark, as he sings “this heart stays cloaked” over angelic backing vocals and Zelda-Reminiscent bleeps and bloops. It’s impossible not be in a good mood after hearing this M83-meets-Grouplove song.
WOOLF AND THE WONDERSHOW - CAGES
“Cages” starts off on a piano-driven kick while dramatic vocals and plenty of strings get you instantly hooked. After hearing “Cloaked,” I knew this relaxed, dramatic vibe couldn’t last for long, and before you know it you’re sucked into a screeching synth-filled blast of energy. As the track continues it slowly builds with more synths, orchestral strings, and more impressive stand-out vocal work that I imagine is what Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie wishes he sounded like.
