Polly and the Wolf

Polly and the Wolf are a collective of Shrewsbury Sixth Form students. I don’t think they’d be offended if I said they aren’t the type of band that throws TVs out of hotel windows. They’re probably more likely to plug the thing in, make a cup of tea and play along with Countdown.

Xylophones, pianos, horns and strings all make appearances on their lovingly crafted tunes. Comparisons are there to be made with Belle & Sebastian or Noah & the Whale, but the most important thing it their songs just have that ability to make you smile. Have a listen to their album Another Routine Episode of Friends – Highlights are TOTBDTDO and Everything Stops.
