This Is War”, the new single from New Zealand Americana trio, Albi & The Wolves, rallies the frustrations of being taken advantage of by a person and makes a prolific stand, once and for all. The liberation of writing “This Is War” and its upbeat, churning grooves rise throughout the melody, sifting through the scattered ashes of an unhealthy relationship and walking away with dignity.
Albi & The Wolves
Albi & The Wolves are soul filled, energetic, electric, and beautiful and they pride themselves on pushing the limits of what three musicians can do within the string band format. The trio create a huge sound using only an acoustic guitar, an electric violin, a double bass, their three voices, and a stomp. These instruments are played by Chris Dent (the proud albino front man Albi), Pascal Roggen, and Micheal Young respectively and each member contributes to the music from broadly different musical backgrounds.
The band is renowned for their great stage presence and the motionless dynamic within their shows that they have evolved by touring New Zealand extensively. Their songs stand out on their own too as the band recently won the Best Folk Artist 2018 TUI at the New Zealand Music Awards for their debut album One Eye Open. So whether it’s Woodford Folk Festival in Brisbane, Australia, or a humble homestead in rural New Zealand, the band bring their world-class sense of humour with them, wherever the music goes.

"This is comfort music, steeped in tradition and familiar sonic presets, but still alive, vibrant and satisfying in the moment.”
Bridget Freeman, The Hook
"it’s both moving to witness the passionate, vocal unity of a large, diverse, foot-stomping group of people"
