Ketch Harbor Wolves

Toronto, CN

Ketch Harbour Wolves made its U.S. debut at last year’s MidPoint and hopefully the word spread regarding the gifts of this amazing Ontario quintet. With the dark melodicism and ethereal Pop angst of Lloyd Cole and The National, KHW captivated audiences at home with its debut EP, 2008’s Dead Calm Horizon, and its just-released full length, Anachronisms, turns up the energy, intensifies the quiet and delivers another set of moody brilliance.
