Something has been missing from the Chicago Rock music scene these days-- namely intelligent lyrics combined with quality guitar, drums, bass, and vocals. This void has been filled by Rakunk. From the raucous rhythms of “Writing with a Knife” to the softer sounds of “About to See the Light”, this EP does not disappoint. It’s both raw and refined at the same time without sounding overproduced. This EP gives us a small sample of the variety of songs this versatile band is capable of generating in the future. I can’t wait for a full album.
