Listeners first got a taste of Chicagos lo-fi folk quintet Chaperone with their truly memorable debut EP last fall. We here at CoS gave audiences more when we had the band play our record release party for Scattered Trees. Now, were giving you another aural morsel by premiering Chaperones new single, Raised By Wolves.
While Shaun Paul and crew’s Cripple King EP leaned more towards Avett Brothers, this new track tips the needle distinctly towards Modest Mouse. Frantic, almost anxious guitars and a heavy bass tramp under strained, desperately impassioned vocals belting, “But I’m no more than the sum of my desires, and you’re nothing but a body in a bed.” All that and a chorus that demands a live audiences callback means a track reared the right way.
