‘Raised By Wolves’ 7″
The new 7″ from Chicago’s Chaperone gives a nod to their punk youth while remaining firmly rooted in the thick weeds of country cadence at the band’s core. The first track, “Raised By Wolves” features bassist, Miles Doornbos, brazenly screaming lyrics he swears are pure fiction. On the back side, the apocalyptic “O Ye Drowning Children” races to the two-minute mark, intensified by vocal harmonies from Shaun Paul and Shaylah Kloska. Recorded in a haunted basement, the band was disappointed to find the final product poltergeist free.
