Cape Town’s very own West Coast Wolves are back with a captivating new single, 'Travelers' out now on Mongrel Records. This latest release showcases the band's evolution from a humble 2-piece acoustic guitar duo to a dynamic 5-piece ensemble, blending their signature West Coast flavour with elements of folk, country, bluegrass, rock n' roll, punk rock reggae, surfpunk, and left-field percussion.

 'Travelers', the latest addition to their repertoire, delves into the personal journey of separation and self-discovery. Written by the band's frontman, the song narrates the story of a father leaving the family, and embarking on a new path. The poignant lyrics, combined with the infectious melody, create an emotional journey.

Reflecting on the origins of 'Travelers', the band shares, "The line ‘don’t stop me moving’ was the message we were left with, but somehow it evolved into a form of personal motivation, so it’s epic that this lyric turned into a main hook in the song." The track retains its reggae flavour while incorporating new elements like the banjo, a bass solo, and a heavy closing section, showcasing the Wolves' musical versatility.

It's a sonic exploration of the human experience, a testament to the Wolves' ability to seamlessly weave together diverse musical influences into a cohesive and captivating sound.

The single is now available on all major streaming platforms, and the West Coast Wolves invite fans and music enthusiasts alike to join them on this musical journey.

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!
