Sea Wolf is another one of those bands that just got too big for the bedroom, or the living room in the case of Alex Brown Church, who started writing these songs while a member of LA’s Irving but ended up going solo—or lone wolf?—with an EP on Dangerbird in 2007. Since then, Sea Wolf has become a full band all its own, putting power and depth into Church’s songs about his life and his loves. True, they were on the Twilight soundtrack—and he’d obviously prefer to be a werewolf, Church told Vanity Fair—but this is music for a much more classic kind of angsty teenager. A new album is coming in just a few weeks, but for now there’s plenty of beauty in the back catalogue.
