Breaking Rad: Chicago’s Rakunk Channel Rock Titans On New EP

Chris Rotolo April 28, 2015 Breaking Rad, Features No Comments


Chicago Indie-Rockers Rakunk have only existed since the early portion of 2014, and initially garnered a multitude of attention – and comparisons to Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, and My Bloody Vlaentine – through a series of rough demos registered to SoundCloud…making the outfit’s debut studio collection much anticipated.

Rakunk recently recorded that inaugural release, tapping a production crew that included engineer Mike Hagler (Wilco, Neko Case) before submitting to Steve Fallone (The Strokes, TV on the Radio) for mastering, and dropped it in January, leading with a raucous Pixies-inspired single titled “Banged Up”.

Stream the explosive track below and stay tuned for more on Rakunk.
