Krooked Tongue Gets Ludicrous with “Lupines”

The band Krooked Tongue has a new EP coming and Music Daily has a band profile for you here. Recently they dropped “Velociraptor.” Previously released in November was the band’s last single “Lupines,” check it out, it’s really good. The track sounds like Foals authoritative drums, big chorus like Anberlin and 30 Seconds to Mars. This song has reverb. And it has a lot of bass and is similar to Arctic Monkeys and Royal Blood with feathery notes on top like Radiohead and Thom Yorke and a strong finish like Bon Jovi. Bear Hands, Band of Horses and Friendly Fires. Another Krooked Tongue song “Swarm” is very reverb-y and uses a lot of feedback; Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave would be proud.  The music in general is very similar to Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine and Interpol. 

As a song, “Lupines” is a pretty spectacular song that requires a few listens, because of its singular and pristine nature. Regarding the group’s sound as a whole, Many tracks have big drums that sound like Blink 182 and a vocal similar to Cold War Kids and the great Scott Weiland, the falsetto on some tracks feels like Staind. 

Other Tracks

The track, “When the beaches bleed” is really similar to Highly Suspect and Rage Against the Machine with feed back-y guitar with distortion, big bass guitar like Pearl Jam and it has feathery (light) vocals on top of the track. In general, Krooked Tongue is reminiscent of Black Keys and Pvris and has that big and bombastic sound that those and Highly Suspect are known for. All this in mind, Krooked Tongue’s best track to date is “Vampyre” (a play on the word pyre and vampire). It feels malevolent and like a track from the band Bear Hands, definitely rock that wants to say “hello” to you. 

“Vampyre” is also similar to the track “Birch Tree” by Foals. Many KT (Krooked Tongue) tracks are reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers, think By The Way. In general, it’s similar to Royal Blood and Highly Suspect. Simply put, really good music with strong guitar chords.  The song “No Vacancy” is similar to “RU Mine” from Arctic Monkeys and tracks from Tool. Tracks from the band include smooth cymbals and really good drum fills and guitar interludes/bridges. The guitar is similar to Coldplay and the vocal has echoes and similar notes to Stephen Tyler of Aerosmith. Watch for an upcoming story on their EP soon.
