SLOW WOLF like the city, but dream of mountains, forests, the sea – and log cabins, they like those too.

When not building dens or stalking bison, they make music that seeks to strip away the frivolity of modern life and connect with more basic human emotions; often by summoning imagery of the natural world and the brutal struggles faced in the animal kingdom.

Slow Wolf are a folk band, but with more than a touch of blues; interweaving finger picking with soulful fiddle hooks, intricate guitar lines and haunting vocals, while delicate bouzouki, brooding bass and driving percussion round up the pack.

Regulars of London’s folk scene, Slow Wolf’s debut album, ‘Territories’, is now out.
