Scotland’s Three Blind Wolves release their debut single Parade via Instinctive Racoon on 15th October 2012 and it’s today’s Track of the day, watch the video below. They describe themselves as “loud, hairy and unpredictable”. We raved about their wonderful track ‘Emily Rose’ with it’s Fleet Foxes style rolling rhythms and call and yearning response melodies way back in 2010.

After releasing their mini album Sound of the Storm in 2011,  their momentum has only gathered pace. Their new track  “Parade shows a further progression aching vocals are carefully balanced by a crashing see-saw Americana tinged rhythms and communal harmonies. “Parade’ is both instantly catchy and timeless captures a wonderfully crafted kind of widescreen- melancholia which should only see their star shoot skyward in coming months. Apparently ‘Parade’ is about feeling lost, forlorn and disconnected from your personal life and the city you life in,” so says lead vocalist Ross Clark. “The one thing that will keep you going is that special someone that will keep you moving forward awaiting the good times, whether they come or not, the important thing is that you keep pushing through.”

The band all met playing shows around the Glasgow music scene, Ross was a solo artist and met David Cleary (lead guitar, backing vocals, mandolin) and Kevin Mackay (bass, backing vocals) through their first group Rainbowsheep. They played their first show together in a Japanese noodle bar and their friendship grew from there, playing in clubs, bars, parks and various flats around Glasgow. When it the time came for the friends to form the band properly, Davie and Kevin’s a long time friend, Fearghas Lyon(drums), joined and they immediately bonded over jamming to Cream and Daft Punk covers; Three Blind Wolves were born and the four boys haven’t looked back since.

Parade is released via Instinctive Racoon on 15th October 2012.
