Sea Wolf

"You're A Wolf"/"Ses Monuments"

Alex Church, who began his musical career as a bassist in local Los Angeles indie group Irving, is gearing up for the May 8th release of Get to the River Before it Runs Too Low, the debut EP of his solo project Sea Wolf. Although many bands share the common “wolf” in their names, you can be assured Church sets Sea Wolf apart from the rest with an array of instruments ranging from cello to keyboard, accompanied by the use of his own melodic singing and story telling lyrics which are all put together to create ear pleasing, memorable songs that you may just find yourself singing well after the music has stopped. Acoustic guitar accompanied by deep strings that hang in the background, and the occasional string swell that join the chorus in “You’re a Wolf” hook up effortlessly with the softly sung, sometimes drawn out melodic lyrics, and instantly make it a standout track on the upcoming EP. “Ses Monuments” has a very different feel when it opens with a jaunty synth that will remind you of your first Nintendo, and returns periodically throughout the song. Despite the more upbeat tempo, “Ses Monuments” shares the drum/string/guitar relationship that works so well throughout Get to the River Before it Runs Too Low. With the solid line up of this first EP, and the prospective September release of a full length, I think we will be seeing much more of Mr. Church and Sea Wolf in the future. Keep your eyes and ears open.
