With big hooks and an enigmatic vocal presence, this promising new outfit is ready to export their unique brand of Indietronica beyond the placid shores of their northern home.

Formed in 2019, New Wolves are a 3-piece indie electronica band from Wales in the UK. Their unique brand of electronic pop confection melds acoustic guitar with layers of vintage synthesizer and contrasts a floating high-end lead vocal with hints of whispered harmony.

"City Air" is a laid back, late-summer anthem for modern city life, written when the first southern breezes were beginning to warm the city, and the galleries and cafes were opening up to the world again. This inviting bit of wistful melody borrows the beefy square-wave tones of a band like The Chain Gang of 1974 and adds the unmistakable compliment of a natural groove, finding a distinct middle ground between synthetic and organic sensibilities. With big hooks and an enigmatic vocal presence, this promising new outfit is ready to export their unique brand of Indietronica beyond the placid shores of their northern home.
