Hooked by Koalra

The vocal grabs your attention right off the bat… this is night, on a binge, travelling through the Lower East Side…. maybe that’s just me… However, this track has energy, and some big ass drive, honestly the appeal from the drummer hits you immediately.

Chicago is home to Koalra, who entered the music scene in 2019 with a self-titled eight-track cd. This track brings the same fluency as that first endeavor; the same heart and passion, however a bit more melancholy in its delivery this time around.

You can hear the influences being brought into this track, The Cure and Dinosaur Jr. really jump out at you. I think the tame delivery in the vocal on Hooked really stands apart giving this tune a thoughtfulness that the traditional noise rock style lacks.

Koalra are currently planning a second full length called The Wakes. Stay tuned…
