Sin Fronteras (No Borders) is just one spellbinding shot of fuzzed-up alt-rock on the emergent, self-titled album from Welsh five-piece Zefur Wolves, released on Strangetown Records on Monday 13 April 2015. Led by singer-songwriter Estelle ios, Sin Fronteras shows solidarity with Mexican communities forced to challenge the world’s busiest border crossing - communities that the band became immersed in while writing and recording in California.
Forming in late 2013, Zefur Wolves have revealed themselves just once, playing live at Wales Millennium Centre in 2014 in collaboration with Venezuelan choreographer, Javier de Frutos. The soundtrack to the contemporary dance performance forms part of Zefur Wolves, 13-tracks of bar-chord-driven alt-rock that encourage listeners to go in search of adventure, political conscience and spiritual peace. The album is preceded on Friday 13 March 2015 with the first single release from the album, Too Late backed by Wake Up.
The Golden Age Of Reason
The saying goes 'idle hands make mischief'. For musicians read 'idle bands'.
During downtime from their respective ensembles and over a village coffee and cake, Chris 'Sklav' Sklavounos, Sheena and Mike Bailey talked record collecting, Stereolab, early Split Enz, Left Banke and the Free Design (between them they have vinyl collections huge enough to trouble the largest of supertankers) and formed another band.
So.... this is a new project comprising members of much loved Welsh bands Helen Love, BBC 6 Music faves Soft Hearted Scientists and The Milk Race plus singer Alyssa Podesta. They've already had some BBC Radio Wales airplay courtesy of Mr Adam Walton despite being in existence for only a matter of months.
They will be playing some select dates in May and entering the studio later the same month after already being chatted up by a couple of labels regarding single releases.
As the saying goes 'watch this space' and other appropriate clichés.
