This week’s edition of Unsigned Spotlight shines on Chicago-based indie rock duo Bernie & The Wolf, comprised of singer/songwriter Bernadette “Bernie” Conant and Erik “The Wolf” Lobo. B&TW’s sound is a mix of chaotic alt-rock and indie rock with a few math elements, all balanced with the shimmering beauty of the vocals and occasional acoustic guitar. It combines to create a sound that is very much the duo’s own and firmly stands out from the crowd.
Hot on the heels of their 2017 LP Catch Some, Bernie & The Wolf unleashed a brand new single last week. Titled “This Time Last Year”, the song features Conant’s soothingly pretty vocals that range from Mindy White (States, Lydia) to Julien Baker while Lobo’s multi-instrumentalist talents come together to show the band at both their best and their most confident. And you can stream it below!
The band has also embarked on a fall tour (dates available here) throughout the United States and Canada. If you dig their music as much as we do and they’re in a city near you, go check them out at a show and tell them Infectious Mag sent you!
