Cry Wolf was born when former hardcore vocalist Justin Phillips decided to pursue his interest in exploring electronic music. Enlisting the help of lifelong friend Johnluke Lewis on drum kit, he set out to create music that fused their Indie and Hardcore backgrounds with their newfound love for electronic music. With less than a year of performing under their belts, they have had their music featured in two films, gotten radio play everywhere from New York to North Carolina, been featured on major music television site fuse.tv, and toured the south-east, sharing stages with national acts such as Skrillex, Deiselboy, Kaskade, Steve Aoki. Cry Wolf has been met with rave reviews from top music blogs such as This Song Is Sick, Ear Milk, Play This Song Loud and Good Music All Day, and held the #1 spot on both The Hype Machine and Twitter’s music charts for three days straight.
Known for their engaging live shows and passionate stage presence, they have created a constantly evolving experiment that will enchant you with beautiful melodies just seconds before smashing your face in with heavy hitting bass. According to Phillips, “With both me and Johnluke coming from hardcore and indie backgrounds, I wanted to make more than what has been defined as dub-step music. I wanted to fuse it with the melodic qualities of indie music, and the raw slamming rhythm of hardcore. What came out is not typical, it’s a multi-genre mutation.”
