HEAVY / ACOUSTIC / MELODIC / MELANCHOLIC
WonderWolf is a definite contrast in style and sound – from laid back melodic pop/ folk ballads all the way through to heavy and hard rock/emo/post hard core sounds. Exploring parallels between light and dark, heavy and soft. The name WonderWolf is meant to represent this conflict – the light and positive energy of wonder and the dark mysteries of the wolf.
Wonderwolf has released 3 albums to date - THE LONG WINTER (2017), CHAPTERS (2018) and ARCHIVES VOL I + II (2018 - a double album collection of previously unreleased demos and B-sides). New single "WE DON'T BELONG HERE", released in April 2021, saw the first new music from the artist in over 3 years, and this was followed by "THE DISTANCE" released in July - an epic collaboration with Johan Heyns from SA rockers Far From Who We Are. And more new music are in the works!
