Needle Drop: We Came From Wolves, “Places Unfamiliar”

In only two short years, We Came From Wolves have released an EP, a debut album, and a slew of singles and videos. The band have endured a line-up change and have toured up and down the country amassing a strong following on and offline. They embody the spirit of true heart-on-sleeve alternative rock and have grown to become one of Scotland’s best unsung heroes of the underground.

WCFW are one of the many bands to have sprung from the post early naughties Biffy Clyro era. However, as Biffy have matured into a more corporate, shiny version of their former selves, it’s now left to the younger generation to carry the baton.

“Places Unfamiliar” is the sound of a band who understand how to capture the raw, unabashed energy of their live performances but convey a message we all understand—a feeling of isolation and loneliness that eventually turns to hope. Frontman and guitarist Kyle Burgess opens with “this isn’t a game for me”—this single is his mission statement about his passion for the band. We Came From Wolves are all about their fans, all about the music, and 100% all about the feels and they want you to know it.

The single is a cascade of early Biffy and My Chemical Romance with a chorus that will make you want to punch the air with excitement and scream with untethered passion. The first of hopefully many new songs in the coming year, with single “Places Unfamiliar” it feels as though the band are beginning to really hit their stride.
