Lunatic Wolf is a contemporary folk-rock duo turned six-piece from Johannesburg, South Africa. The band was formed in 2012 by Richard Oldfield and Gavin van den Berg who had been writing music together since their high school years. Oldfield and van den Berg explored various musical directions together, before settling on their current sound which has been likened to groups such as Death Cab for Cutie, Noah Gundersen, Mumford & Sons and Sufjan Stevens.
Lunatic Wolf's debut release "To the Adventure" was recorded at High Seas Studios and was co-produced by van den Berg and Jacques du Plessis (Wrestlerish, Desmond & the Tutus, Shortstraw). The album captures the duo's transition through adulthood exploring themes of growth, childhood nostalgia, the end of life and love.
