what is that indie song about turning into a wolf?

Name that song: I have a very vague memory of an "indie" song I heard last year but can't recall the name or artist or tune. The lyrics may have had something to do with turning into a wolf or running with a wolf, or something...

I believe it was a fairly recent release by an "indie rock" or "folk rock" sort of band...maybe Bon Iver or The National or Fleet Foxes or some other aesthetically similar band. Musically, it was sort of anthemic and upbeat but a little wistful.

Any ideas?

Seconding Furr; it seems like a pretty likely match.

From the front page I was thinking TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me but it is not folky.

Howl by Florence + the Machine? It's kind of anthemic to me.

My first thought was Sea Wolf as well. Maybe Middle Distance Runner?

Hungry like the wolf -- by Duran Duran? Although that song came out in the 80s.

Nthing Furr also, but just in case, it could be Wolf and I.

Response by poster: It's Furr by Blitzen Trapper, thanks team!!! Also, all these songs are really going to fill out my nascent wolf-themed playlist!
