Hailing from Austin, TX, The Ghost Wolves are a blues/punk/rock 'n' roll duo whose members, Carley and Jonny, share the last name Wolf. Add in the fact that they've released music on Jack White's label, and the obvious comparison is The White Stripes. And... that's a fair comparison. But I'd compare them to Shovels & Rope equally. The band's latest single, "Fast (2300 A.D.)," is a blisteringly groovy rock song, but the band has a little more of Shovels & Rope's pop sensibilities than The White Stripes' blues roots. This is just old school rock 'n' roll based punk with a modern pop edge to it, and I mean that in the best possible way.
You can watch the video for "Fast (2300 A.D.)" below. The song is available as a single via Lunch Records. You can purchase a limited edition vinyl single (and get more information on The Ghost Wolves) over at the band's website, and digital over at Bandcamp.
