Formerly known as Dear You, Wolves At Bay treads similar progressive punk waters as bands such as Small Brown Bike, Balance And Composure and Make Do And Mend. The quartet builds its songs on a unique foundation of raw enthusiasm and intensity tempered only by a tireless work ethic and thoughtful composition, and Only A Mirror impresses with driving rhythms, gruff-yet-tuneful melodies and dynamic songwriting chops. Prepare yourself for an impressive debut teaming with hard-charging punk anthems, engaging instrumental passages and an overall sense of urgency and purpose.
