Lunatic Wolf Band

Based: Johannesburg

Lunatic Wolf is a contemporary folk-rock band from Johannesburg, South Africa. Since releasing their debut offering “To the Adventure” various singles have

received extensive playlisting on nationwide radio including Highveld, 5FM, Jacaranda, RSG, East Coast Radio and SAFM as well most student and community

stations. The band has become a festival favourite with performances such as Oppikoppi, Splashy Fen, White Mountain Folk Festival and Voetspoor Fees under

their belts. Formed in 2012 by Richard Oldfield and Gavin van den Berg, their sound has been likened to groups such as Death Cab for Cutie, Noah Gundersen,

Mumford & Sons and Sufjan Stevens. Lunatic Wolf’s debut release “To the Adventure” was recorded at High Seas Studios in Johannesburg and was co-produced

by van den Berg and Jacques du Plessis (producer for Wrestlerish, Desmond & the Tutus, Shortstraw). The album captures the duo’s transition to adulthood,

exploring themes of growth, childhood nostalgia and the end of life and love. Joined by Gavin Flaks (Wrestlerish), David Grevler (Wrestlerish), Jacques du

Pleases (Wrestlerish) and Adrian Erasmus (Dance,you’reonfire), the 6-piece folk-rock collective plans to record their second offering and tour extensively in

South Africa in 2017.
