Biography

Only Wolf is Canadian artist Sean Parker. The solitude reflected in his moniker mirrors the personal, contemplative nature of his psych-folk fusion. Only Wolf’s music is both a meditation on transhuman desire and a labyrinth of longing, incanting between pulsating guitar work and electronic drums. 

Only Wolf’s droning guitar and downtempo beats put you into an hypnotic state as his vocals evoke the delicacy of Bon Iver’s croons and the atmospheric, electronic folk of Mount Eerie. Each tune pulls you into an echo chamber of introversion, with a slow-moving blanket fog enveloping you into an ambiguous, lucid trip–an impressive reminder of the textures Thom Yorke achieved on The Eraser. As a sound sculptor, Only Wolf moulds smooth synth work, dancing the line of sober and not, never quite allowing the audience to wake up from their trance.

Living between Vancouver and Spain, Only Wolf has played three European tours, managing to play in over forty six cities across twelve different countries and as a supporting act for such names as Explosions in the Sky, Ian William CraigSteve Gunn and Kaki King.

Only Wolf's second Lp Trust, is expected to be be released in Vancouver with indie label Kingfisher Bluez in September 2017. Jesse Creed a.k.a. The-passenger did the mix-down and mastering and is featured on the release, playing his Synclavier 9600


Lyrics

Pirate Drones:

Written By: Only Wolf

Black madness forms the clones
Preserve the beast with robot drones
Transhuman desires will get us there
Filter the waste to breath the air
You can take what you want
So you take what you want
I don't know why you don't know this at all
And you don't know why I don't want it at all

Petit Oiseau

Written By: Only Wolf

O petit oiseau you looking kind of old
Feeling tired?
See you standing on a wire
So you thinking about going home
Well now fly I hope you get there
Cause the winds blowing wild and tonight it’ll be a storm

Petit oiseau you’re yellow just like the sun
Haven’t seen it for a while
So cold my toes feeling numb
Well fly I hope you get there
By the morning you’ll still be in the air

O petit oiseau what are you doing
You feeling scared?
I could take you back home with me
And feed you everyday
But what fun would that be
Rather feeling your age then be stuck in a wooden cage till you die

Petit oiseau would you sing me one of your songs
Cause they sound so good, don’t think you realize

Chemicals

Written By: Only Wolf

In between my ears and nose
There’s something going to happen when you
Keep all of your chemicals
I want to feel what feeling feels like
Can you see what we can be
I’m begging you I’m on my knees now
I don’t need those chemicals
Just want to feel what feeling feels like
So in between my ears and nose
There’s something going to happen when you
Keep all of your chemicals
Just want to feel what feeling feels like

Think I’m going away so far
Don’t know if I’m gonna stay
But if it shows, my body knows
Think I’m going away so far
Don’t know if I’m gonna stay
But if it shows, my body knows
I don’t need to up and leave you
Still there’s something more inside them
Can you feel it looking back with
All is falling new skies calling
Think I’m going away so far
Don’t know if I’m gonna stay
But if it shows, my body knows
Well I don’t need to up and leave you
Still there’s something more inside them
Think I’m going away so far
Don’t know if I’m gonna stay
But if it shows, my body knows

Trust

Written By: Only Wolf

Feel
Feelings for another
Don't let go
Eyelids sipping over
Can you trust
All that ever was once
Even dust?
To let you have a good time
I hope you have a good time

Babycakes

Written By: Only Wolf

Oh darling, darling sweet can you feel me walking down the street
And you’re just standing there reading about something good
I like your green sweater I think that you should
Know you look so fine working your babycake store
Waiting for groups of Asians to come back for more
Cause they like your smile and they love the way you smell
But they don’t realize you cast them a spell
The same spell you cast on me the one I sleep with in bed at night
Wake up in the morning can’t shake you off my mind
And that’s okay that just fine see if I care I really don’t mind
What can I do and what can I say its quarter to six and I’m running late

Mr. Wolf

Written By: Only Wolf

What time is it Mr. Wolf?
What time is it Mr. Wolf?

Would you take my shoes shave my beard
Take my shoes shave my beard
Would you take my shoes shave my beard
Take my shoes shave my beard

What time is it Mr. Wolf?
What time is it Mr. Wolf?

Would you drink my tea change the tune
Drink my tea change the tune
Would you drink my tea change the tune
Drink my tea change the tune

What time is it Mr. Wolf?
What time is it Mr. Wolf?

Would you steal my woman make her feel
Steal my woman make her feel
Would you steal my woman make her feel
Steal my woman make her feel

What time is it Mr. Wolf?
What time is it Mr. Wolf?

Would you eat me if I fell asleep
Eat me if I fell asleep
Would you eat me if I fell asleep
Eat me if I fell asleep

O Mr. Wolf I think it’s time to leave
Before you shave my beard
No girls could like me

O Mr. Wolf I think it’s time to run
Before you change my tune
Just like you’ve always done

O Mr. Wolf I think I’ll leave town
Before you take my woman
And show her around

O Mr. Wolf I think it’s time to hide
Cause I’m getting tired
And I don’t want to die
