Three Blind Wolves

Three Blind Wolves


“Stadium sized melodies and four-part harmonies without diving headlong into a pool full of clichés...” - MOJO Magazine

After two successful singles and a tour with Frightened Rabbit, Glasgow four-piece Three Blind Wolves released their fantastic debut album Sing Hallelujah For The Old Machine on 27th May 2013 via Instinctive Racoon.

Singles In Here Somewhere and Parade could easily be compared to artists like My Morning Jacket and Neil Young but there are moments where the band moved beyond their trademark Americana influences. “Honey Fire” crescendos into an ambient wall of sound, suddenly transforming into a grungier chorus. “Slow Summer Deer” is big, bold and brilliantly indie yet “When The Garden Gets Near” is more intimate - just Ross Clark on his acoustic guitar. It feels as though the band are pushing and pulling you through a journey of emotion.

Parade, gained support from John Kennedy (XFM) and Vic Galloway (BBC Radio 1 Scotland) with the band also being asked to perform a session for Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2). Their second single, In Here Somewhere, saw the boys take to the road with fellow Scots Frightened Rabbit, supporting the northern leg of their tour.

Singer Ross Clark started out as a solo artist playing gigs in Glasgow, after meeting David Cleary (lead guitar, backing vocals, mandolin), Kevin Mackay (bass, backing vocals) and Fearghas Lyon (drums, backing vocals) from their own musical adventures, the four bonded instantly and formed a band. Over the past three years they have toured across the USA, Canada, The Netherlands and the UK extensively, including showcasing at SXSW, CMW and Eurosonic in 2012 and major festivals such as T in the Park, Hop Farm and The Great Escape.

Their mini album Sound of the Storm in 2011 had The List hailing them as a “countrified Modest Mouse”. The Skinny compared them to Bright Eyes and Bon Iver whilst Rolling Stone noted comparisons to the Decemberists. More recently The Vinyl District hailed the boys as “the most important new band to emerge from Scotland this year”.
