Get ready to embark on a musical journey like no other as Cape Town's genre-bending band, West Coast Wolves announces the release of their latest music video, Burn It. Known for their fearless fusion of folk, punk rock, and bluegrass, this band is breaking down barriers and blazing a trail in the Cape Town music scene.

The creative process behind Burn It was a whirlwind of inspiration as the band explains, "We have an 'anything goes attitude' in rehearsals; it's how we pull in so many genres. 'Burn It' was inspired by the Michael Jackson funk piece Gaelen wrote tinkering on his fuzz pedal. Miggs promptly began 'slappin' da bass'! Pete was told to wrangle an African-sounding, upbeat guitar/banjo verse to bring Michael Jackson back home, and so he did."

The lyrics explore the delicate balance between love and frustration within a relationship, "While you can still love someone, sometimes they can just drive you crazy and you want to burn the whole relationship right to the ground."

Burn It promises to be an electrifying and unforgettable addition to West Coast Wolves’ growing catalogue of music. The band has already earned a dedicated fan base in South Africa with their unique sound and thought-provoking lyrics. Now, they are ready to share their musical vision with the world.

About West Coast Wolves

The West Coast Wolves are surfers with strong connections to the Ocean & Kreef Gods of Southern Africa’s diabolical West Coast. Pack animals by nature, the Wolves draw their inspiration from the WES KUS, nourished by fireside acoustic jam sessions, blazin’ banjo, frosted quarts, icy surf and occasionally howling at the moon when the stars align.
The Wolves ethos ‘music, surf, jol’ reflects the character of the band, who often go against the grain to embrace this lifestyle, and as a result they’ve been building a buzz since they started touring with their upbeat and original West Coast beats. Starting with an acoustic & djembe driven bass, the Wolves throw in a variety of different genres, exploring folk, country and bluegrass.
Fuse this together with their rock n' roll, punk rock, reggae roots… throw in some surf-punk & left field percussion then you start to get an idea!
