Asbury Park Emo act, Idle Wave, proves they are not to be slept on, with the release of their latest single, “Wolves”. The track opens with a punchy beat that just makes you wanna dance, paired with front bottoms-esque guitars that really hook you in to these eerily thought provoking and relatable lyrics.


On the track, Guy Battaglia says:


"Wolves" is about losing people to corruption:

A ghost tempting you with the same evils that they possess...

It's worrying that you'll fall into their footsteps if you don't escape the cycle...

This sparks the question; are we destined to corruption by the same evils that we have already fallen victim to?

Initially, like Wolves, we are a byproduct of our environment. The people that we surround ourselves with (accompanied by their actions) heavily impacts who we are...”


Every time I see that Idle Wave announce the release of new music, I always get excited because they never fail to deliver great, diverse tunes. This song is no different. It’s folksy and upbeat, all the while being solemn and real. In a recent Interview with Second Society Report, Guy mentioned that he is sitting on more songs than there are on their Spotify, which is a pretty dope thought. Idle Wave is a band that are definitely worth keeping an eye on, because if “wolves” is anything to go by, the music they've got coming your way is going to be killer. I highly recommend jamming through their available music on spotify to get amped for their future releases, and you can even do so in about 20 min.
