Story of the Running Wolf
Sometimes good things happen. Sometimes the gods smile down on you and say ‘this is your day’. Those days seem to be happening a bit more often lately and I’m not going to say that’s a bad thing. Case in point: 32 seconds ago we got a tip on The Story of the Running Wolf from our trusted West Coast consigliere who shall remain nameless until he’s ready to reveal himself. This is one of the most significant musical discoveries I have experienced in ages. I’m so excited about this band I can barely type or make sense.
Story of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80’s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com
