Artist Spotlight: Wolf Colony X

In our Artist Spotlight Series we talk to artists about the highs and lows of dedicating their lives to the thing they love most: making music.


Wolf Colony is the solo project of anonymous NYC-based electronic pop singer-songwriter "Wolf". His music can best be described as a mesmerizing blend of melancholic and sensual vocals with minimalist synth-pop beats.

Wolf Colony has performed in some of NYC's best known music venues including Webster Hall, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Electric, and Baby's Alright. Wolf Colony always performs in a wolf mask. His approach is to captivate listeners with his music as opposed to his appearance; and believe you me, it's working.

On March 3rd 2015, Wolf Colony released his new album "Unmasked". Stream it below:
