While in Raleigh, Hancock met Raymond Finn, Zack Oden, and Johnny Hobbs to turn WOOL from a solo project into a full band. After their first official show in November 2012, WOOL built a name for themselves within the local Raleigh scene and eventually booked a short East Coast stint through New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. With a slot at Raleigh’s Hopscotch Music Festival in 2013, WOOL was poised to hit the studio and crank out fresh material. They released their debut EP titled Delta last October, which demonstrated an enormous amount of range between their 90s-influenced aesthetic in the vein of Built to Spill to more devastating shoegaze moments as found on closing track “Bulletin Air.”

On March 18th, WOOL released their latest single “Stars,” a glimpse into a dreamier, more fleshed-out side of the band. With a full-length album slated for a late-summer release, WOOL is ready to push themselves even further. “I feel that my experiences with really struggling and sometimes questioning who I am as an individual eventually got me to a place where I’m confident in myself, in my musical style,” says Hancock. “I do feel like that those themes of self doubt do show up in some of my songs.”
