Auckland folksters Albi & The Wolves are pleased to announce the release of their new single 'One Eye Open' from their forthcoming album - out December 9th 2016.
"When we finished this song we felt it had to be out before the album as the dynamic of the song kinda sums the band up." says front man Chris Dent - AKA Albi. " The quick and slow elements represent some of our different styles and we dabble in a few different grooves that fans of ours might recognise".
'One Eye Open' is a song written for an ex girlfriend. "She was awesome and loads of fun so we made One Eye Openexciting to perform and we hope people have as much fun hearing it".
The accompanying video was created Ian Neilson. Between him, as producer and cinematographer, David Peterson, as co- cinematographer, and Nate Dunn, who assisted and edited the video, they have produced a high energy documentary style clip replete with behind the scenes footage, the band's recording process and life on the road.
