SheWolF from Melbourne in Australia is the rock quartet of Cassandra Vlahos (Guitar / Vocals), Ellen Russo (Bass / Vocals), Serena Vlahos (Vocals) and Nikki Vlahos (Drums / Vocals).
Strong combinations of guitars and percussion stream across the room as SheWolF deliver their sounds of fuzz and melody wrapped inside powerful pace-setting drums. Over it a comes a vocal which softens the sound allowing the listener to engage with the compositions, whilst still burying their head inside the speakers.
Some smart switches in balance between bass and percussion allows the quartet to change emphasis mid-way through tracks keeping the audience riveted to the compositions. Whilst SheWolF is able to scruff the ground giving the out-put the necessary dirt, it is their ability to layer this with textures and melodies, that gives the out-put considerable interest.
A couple of years behind them SheWolF are beginning to make their mark in the live scene with a continuing schedule of performances, for those of us a little further away, it would be great to have the opportunity to hear more of them – an eponymous EP that came out in November goes some-way to address this.
