23 Days of Sasquatch: Day 7 – Sea Wolf

Born from the title of Jack London’s novel, Sea Wolf is an extension of the talents of Alex Brown Church, whose haunting vocals will more often than not send chills down your spine. Sincere lyricism and a full band backing are the main ingredients in Sea Wolf’s catchy and refreshing sound.

Its 2012 album release, Old World Romance, is eager, perhaps overly so, but comes together through solid drum beats and folksy guitar picking. The intent isn’t to be new or innovative — it profiles many of the popular techniques we see in the music industry today: orchestral support, electronic chords, etc. But what Old World Romance may lack in creativity, it makes up for in a transparency that’s difficult to not be attracted to.
