It is a pleasure to speak with Starwolf today. They hail from St. Louis and have been making an impact on the local music scene, as well as a making their mark on a national scale.
Q. Please tell us about the band’s roots in St. Louis. How would you describe your audience?
A. We’re all from in and around St. Louis. There’s a great scene here and we’re lucky to be a part of it. There aren’t too many bands doing what we’re doing, so I think it sets us apart in a way.
Q. This marks the first year that the band will be playing at LouFest. How does this show stand out for other performances?
A. This will be our biggest hometown show yet, so it definitely stands out. We play right before Huey Lewis and the News, so we’re stoked about that.
Q. Do you adapt your live show to sound different than your recorded material, or do you try to keep it consistent?
A. Since we’re just a trio, we definitely adapt our set to an extent, but we try to keep it close to the record.
Q. How was your recent performance at Delmar Hall? How is the sound design in the venue?
A. DH is great. The staff, room, sound is super pro. Hope to do another show there soon.
Q. Would you say that your music is intergalactic? How would you describe it?
A. Ha, I dig that. We’ve described it before as retro-space funk… like if the 70’s had an affair with the 80’s, then remained cryogenically frozen until today. So that’s not too far off.
Q. Who is some of your favorite influences, vocalists and musicians?
A. Everything from Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Alf, Talking Heads, Vulfpeck, Al Green, and Falkor.
If there is anything else you want to share, please let me know.
A. We’re currently finishing up our debut EP, hoping to release new music by the end of the year or early next year.
