The band Dire Wolves deliver their version of the higher dimension of cosmic free-rock and enjoy to explore new possibility in music. Dire Wolves deliver spontaneous compositions and the focus is more about feeling than any specific approach to playing. Psychic rock for the mind and body, breathe deep and enjoy this great band. The line-up: Sheila Bosco with drums, Brian Lucas plays bass, Jeffrey Alexander with guitars, moog and wooden sax, Arjun Mendiratta with violin, Laura Naukkarinen and Georgia Carbone sings.

San Francisco’s Dire Wolves is a hard working band and have now released four albums and two spilt albums.

Alexander says that, «The album thematically tries to express the interconnectedness of all things, which makes perfect sense given even during some of the more unsettling jams and eerie melodies, this album always feels like a cohesive whole».
Every tone of Grow Towards The Light is actually total improvised, and the listeners could definitely expect much nice and tasteful surprises in the music. There are fair amount on the album of eerie music, spinster themes, cinematic elements, dark soundscapes, beautiful music, and shrieking instruments and haunting vocals.
