Sea Wolf's Alex Brown Church.
Sea Wolf is Alex Brown Church, who's currently best known as the bassist and co-singer/songwriter for the L.A. indie-rock band Irving. Church, who cut his teeth crafting Irving's neo-psychedelic alt-pop sound, got a big break when his home recordings found their way into the hands of Seattle producer Phil Ek, who's worked on records by The Shins, Band of Horses and Built to Spill.
On his debut EP, Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low, Church puts his skills to good use on a collection of delicate, timeless pop songs. At times, the disc recalls classic '70s and '80s songwriters like Mark Knopfler and Tom Petty, but the arrangements also hint at a more experimental side, complete with cello and keyboards. Pairing warm acoustic songwriting with plaintive, intimate vocal work, Sea Wolf releases a full-length follow-up later this year.
