Wolf Parade conquers the stereotype of a super-group. While most eventually suffer from clashing egos, fall into an indistinct sound, or just become bad, Wolf Parade has managed to consistently put out a sound that is definitely their own. The creative minds of its members are each represented and fleshed out, sonically eliminating the ego problem. If you’re looking for a sound description, look at some of the bands Wolf Parade’s members have contributed to: Sunset Rubdown, Handsome Furs, Hot Hot Heat, and Arcade Fire. Wolf Parade is a usually upbeat, sometimes frantic, but always interesting conglomeration of these very different bands. In Wolf Parade you might hear echoes of these side projects but, rather than detract, these echoes only serve to remind you of the band’s stunning originality.
