The first sound you hear on Non-Stop is an instrument mimicking a siren. But there’s
no need to duck-and-cover. We Are Wolves live up to its name, bringing forth a
feral sound full of tribal rhythm, frenetic keyboard squeals and wild-man vocals.
That means, the lyrics don’t need lots of interpretation; forget ‘em
and just shake and shimmy along to "Little Birds" with its simple chorus
of "Oh baby baby, I ain’t no little bird!"
The freewheeling attitude of We Are Wolves will draw lots of comparisons to the
B-52s, with hints of the White Stripes mashed up with old-school glam-rocker Gary
Glitter. The Canadian trio manages to rattle the rafters without the benefit of
guitar; working with just bass, drums and keys. If you want to be leader of the
pack, start running with these wolves now.
