Psychedelic-blues trio DeWolff have revealed their new video for ‘Double Crossing Man’ which is taken from their new album ‘THRUST’, which was released in May this year.
The video footage was taken from their performance at Lowlands Festival this year. Talking about the song they say; ““We recorded this track live to tape with our great friend Levi Vis from the Dawn Brothers on bass. We had only 30 minutes left before Levi had to leave. We thought fuck it, let’s just do a run through of the song, soundcheck, and then do one take really quickly. We recorded the run through, the very first time we played this song together, listened back to it and we loved it. It’s full of spontaneous little things, some flaws, but the energy was just really good.
“Pablo came up with this riff and we instantly got this Undercover of the Night vibe, disco meets rock n roll, so we played around with that and then Luka just started singing random stuff. The weird sounding high pitched “swooosh” at the very end of the song is the sound of the tape recorder coming to a halt abruptly while Pablo & Luka were screaming the last word, “maaaaaan”. Some transistor in the tape recorded overheated, burned and then all the power went out. We had to fix the tape recorder before we could hear back the tape!”
DeWolff formed in the Netherlands’ Deep South of Geleen, when they were barely teenagers in 2007 by brothers’ Pablo (singer/guitarist) and Luka van de Poel (Drums) and Hammond organist Robin Piso. Named after Harvey Keitel’s character, Winston Wolfe, in Pulp Fiction, their luscious and expansive neo-psychedelia saw them burst out of the city.
They have released 5 studio albums previously, all have catapulted them up the charts in their homeland. Whilst still in their teens they played the prestigious Paradiso in Amsterdam and took to the mainstage at PinkPop Festival in front of 10,000 fans, relentless touring followed, earmarking them as a formidable live act. Since then they’ve played to 30,000 at Lowlands Festival, 15,000 at Sziget, as well as Reeperbahn, Rockpalast, Rock Oz Arenas and supported The Black Keys, Blues Pills and Deep Purple.
They’ve played Castle’s throughout Europe, been invited to perform at a Russian millionaire’s birthday party in Berlin, they had bodyguards for a show on a Moscow rooftop and at a Biker festival just outside the city, they came face to face with unexpected pyrotechnics, nudity and watched fire spread across the stage during their set.
In 2017, the band celebrated their 10th Anniversary in fine style as they headlined their own DeWolfest to 3,500 fans with support from amongst others, Wolf People.
DeWolff will be on tour through Europe from September 2018 – February 2019.
