We have an obsession with Smoke Season. Seriously. Their music is so unique and extraordinary that it is hard for us to pass up presenting one of their new song to you. But if you happen to be new to our site and if you want to know how deep our obsession with this band is, here is quick run down. We have seen them 3 times in concert, interviewed them twice and reviewed countless singles and music videos. Yeah, we like them. And we continue to push them to you because we believe that Smoke Season is music you need to hear. With that being said, the Los Angeles duo is back with another new single, “Wolves”.
Their dark, emotionally-charged style on “Wolves” is heightened and begins to develop its signature minimalist sound. The song builds early on with Gabrielle Wortman‘s hushed vocals before Jason Rosen adds his harmonies and stinging, echoed guitar riffs. And as the track develops it is layered with frantic percussion toward the end of the song that reaches a feral, yet controlled, chorus of howls.
“Wolves” is everything that we have come to expect from Smoke Season. It is dark, brooding and an exhibition of musical talent. Their ability to harmonize and develop a layered, complex story in a 4-minute song is nothing short of spectacular. We have said it before and we will continue to say that Smoke Season is one of the most underrated bands out there. Their sound is unique, but is approachable and commercial.
