The Oakland, California quartet lures the listener into a film noir-ish sonic and emotional landscape, frothing over with anthemically tuneful songs, boasting shadowy tales of lies, betrayal, and hard-fought enlightenment. The four-piece has garnered favorable comparisons to Hot Water Music, Queens of The Stone Age, The Damned, and the classic 1990's Sub Pop-era sound. Highlights in the band’s first year of existence include earning a distro deal with Street Scholar/Bungalo/Universal Music Group, and garnering support from Bay Area Rock station 107.7 The Bone who shared Wolves In Argyle’s “Dangereux” video via its website. In addition, senior curators at Reverbnation have rallied behind the Wolves In Argyle track “Northern Lies.”
The band is Dave Holmes (The Oozzies, Shootin' Lucy and Brother Cain), singer-guitarist Steve Moriarty (The Gits and Evil Stig featuring Joan Jett on vocals), drums; Joe G. (Naked Aggression), bass and backup vocals; and Josh Phillips (White Trash Debutantes, Fire In the Asylum), on lead guitar.
The group’s debut is a 9-track, 32-minute sonic and emotional white-knuckle ride. Dangereux was produced by Tad Doyle and mastered by Jack Endino.
