WOLVES presents "Shoulder To Shoulder"
Entitled “Shoulder to Shoulder” it is a knock in the head flashback to the past. Set for release on Martin Luther King Day, it resurrects the emotions on Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” at a time the band feels we all need to hear that message again. Opting for a more triumphant sound, leaning on booming bass and synths with a stadium-stomping rhythm to push for equality and acceptance and featuring lyrics like “The dreams of our mothers are safe and sound, we’re shoulder to shoulder and won’t back down,” the anthem carries a timeless message for a new generation: one that says we must always be in this fight TOGETHER for equality. As long as there are those who stand against justice and equal rights for all of humanity, we must—and will always stand—shoulder to shoulder.
WOLVES have already earned top spots on the Billboard charts as well as receiving heavy rotation on Sirius XM and garnered acclaim from the likes of Variance, Earmilk and PopDust.
Meet WOLVES, a band that are breaking barriers and pushing the boundaries of modern music with their infectious blend of genres. Consisting of Marc Avery, Sean Carney, and Rockwell Sands, the Los Angeles based trio have created their own unique sound, marrying pop sensibilities with bold rock’n’roll and gritty urban beats. With each member hailing from various cultural backgrounds, WOLVES have crafted their own distinct style, shaping the sound of pop culture as we know it.
“We wondered what it would be like if we took all these different influences we loved—artists like Michael Jackson, the Eagles, Coldplay—and rolled them all into one band today,” Sands muses. Their eclectic influences proved to be inspirational, with their debut single ‘Animal’ giving the trio their signature explosive sound.
The band was named after the characteristics of wolves. These majestic animals which are bonded by an innate sense of the pack, move in harmony as one unit towards common goals. “I can’t think of a better way to describe us. The three of us are all about the good of the group; every day we try to embody that philosophy in our music and beyond.” remarks Avery.
WOLVES single 'Freaky' is an anthem to inspire others to be brave and embrace who you are, to share your inner-most desires with the world and to live life to the fullest. Featuring slick indie pop grooves, 90’s reminiscent hip hop and hard-hitting rhythms, ‘Freaky’ is a song that you can’t help but dance to. "We love listening to music from back in the day and try to re-imagine what it would sound like today.” reveals Carney.
From the primal energy of ‘Animal' to the seductive tones in ‘Freaky’, WOLVES have crafted a wildly diverse range of music built for pop radio and stadiums alike. Having already earned top spots on the Billboard charts and heavy rotation on Sirius XM Hits 1, the trio hopes to inspire audiences across the globe with their music, and to continue creating unforgettable songs that at once nod to the past and hurtle towards the future.
