WOLVON

These three bearded men from the northern part of Holland bring post-noise alternated with enchanting, mellowed out dreampop. With amps in overdrive and lots of reverberated vocals this band made quite a name for itself in a short period of time. They also seem to have a mission to go with their music as they themselves declare: Wolvon gives comfort to those in need. Or as we like to say: Get your Wolvon!
