Sea Wolf is an indie folk/rock band based in Los Angeles led by Alex Brown Church. It formed in 2003 after Church left his previous band Irving to pursue his own style, but it wasn't until 2007 that they signed up with Dangerbird Records to release their first commercial album, an EP called ''Get To The River Before It Runs Too Low''. The band takes its name from JackLondon's 1904 novel ''The Sea-Wolf'', which shows just how invested the singer/songwriter Church is in classic literature and mythology.
They have an official website [[http://seawolfmusic.com/ here]].

!Tropes that apply to Sea Wolf and its songs:
* TheAlcoholic: The protagonist of "Winter Windows". [[TheUnfavorite And who can blame him?]]
* Myth/ClassicalMythology: "Orion and Dog" is Sea Wolf's retelling of the myth of Orion.
* GenreShift: "O Maria!" is surprisingly loud and catchy for a band mostly invested in quiet, melodious works.
* IAmTheBand: Church is the only permanent member of the band; every other position is held by a rotating ensemble of backup musicians. It gets very literal in ''Old World Romance'': He's the ''only'' member of the band, and he [[OneManArmy made all the songs himself]].
* LiteraryAllusionTitle: Several, mostly from folklore. The band's name itself came from the title of a novel by JackLondon.
* LyricalDissonance: "Winter Windows" is an exciting, uplifting song...about a neglected child-turned-alcoholic who lost his son by being abusive to him, and regretting every moment of it.
* SurrealMusicVideo: "Winter Windows"'s video starts out normally, with Church playing two pianos adorned with paper maple leaves. Then the background objects start turning into animals.
