Formed in late 2013, Adelaide all-girl foursome Babes Are Wolves are just about to release their official debut single. Judging by the reaction to their early demos 'Down' and 'Feed Me To The Dogs' which kicked them off on the Oz buzz radar last year, the Babes look like they are set to make an easy transition to take off in the UK.
Out on October 2, 'Wait' is the lead single from their debut EP 'You Only Live Twice', set for release two weeks later. The track, co-produced by Jimmy Balderston (Grenadiers, High Tension) is an atmospheric three-and-a-half minute grunge-rock/dark pop fusion that is a belting hook-driven number, with layers of guitar and rhythmic drum beats; vocalist Anna Bouras' vocal being the compelling and commanding lynchpin.
Babes Are Wolves are: Anna Bouras - vocals, (ex-The Villenettes), Zoe Behan - drums (ex-Gold Bloom, Ride Into The Sun, The British Robots), Casey Cumming - bass (ex-The British Robots), Emily Smith - guitar
