2017 CBC Searchlight Top 4 Finalists! New music video for 'Can You Hear Me?' out now on Youtube! #thewolfepack

Biography

Formed in 2012, it’s hard to believe that this all-girl trio from Saskatchewan is only 18. Canada's Top 4 Finalist for CBC Searchlight in 2017, and winner of Sasktel’s 2015 Songwriter of the Year, The Wolfe touches on relatable subjects that are expressed through their risk-taking, sometimes cheeky, yet stuck-in-your-head catchy tunes. Soft yet powerful vocals are contrasted with an underlay of delayed guitar, gritty bass lines and engaging beats. Having often been compared to Metric and The Cranberries, The Wolfe has also been called “A female U2 that’s able to get heavier and tackle more emotional subjects.”

The Wolfe’s music is something that should not only be heard, but seen. Their high-energy show has graced the stages and captivated the crowds of Regina Folk Festival, The Gateway Festival, and Borealis Music Festical to name a few. Having released an EP, played over a hundred shows and touched the hearts of many, The Wolfe is just beginning.

Lyrics

The Sea And Me

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

She's hiding far away,
Don't you see that she's afraid of the sea?
But they shove it down her throat
Oh those friends they don't know
That in the ocean she'll go

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

She hides her face for the world to see
And keeps her secrets known
So she won't fade away alone
'Til the tides grown old

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

She's hiding far away
Don't you see that she's afraid of the sea?
But they shove it down her throat
Oh those friends they don't know
That in the ocean she'll go

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

Dumb Dog

Written By: Von Bayda

I won't play it dumb
I'm not gonna change for you
Take it or leave it
It's what I am and what I do
Unfriend me or dislike me
When it all comes down to it
I'm just a mutt who knows the tricks

I think there's been a mistake
Who would accept it this way
I think too much
I'm getting tired of the games
I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I will say how I feel
And risk standing alone
Not saying what you want
I am myself and not your dog bone
You can't leash me in
When it all comes to it
I'm just a mutt who knows the trick

I think there's been a mistake
Who would accept it this way
I think too much
I'm getting tired of the games
I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

Can You Hear Me?

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

I bite my tongue so you can't hear me
I don't know what you want me to be

You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret
You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret all of this

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

We're shaking, fighting for our lives
The air blows grey in winter whites

You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret
You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret all of this

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me howl?

Need You

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Are you more afraid of death or dying?
When every second isn't given
Do you crave destruction?
Do you smoke to flip a calendar?

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you (I need you)

We're running in circles
We always do
We're like deer in the headlights
We never move

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you

Arm Yourself

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Something is missing and I don't know what
A ribcage without a lung
A chest without a beating heart
There's a small space between that wasn't there before

I am terrified it will swallow me whole
Arm yourself child, we are going to war
If you wear my skin, show me how to live
Arm yourself child, we are going to war

Sweetheart, can you hear the noise on the street?
How poetic it seems when no one else can hear me
There's a small space between that wasn't there before

I am terrified it will swallow me whole
Arm yourself child, we are going to war
If you wear my skin, show me how to live
Arm yourself child, we are going to war

I am terrified
