Crown Larks


May 5, 2017

Artist Location:
Chicago, IL

“On Population, Crown Larks drag jazzy saxophone through the muck, discombobulate their limber Krautrock riffs, and strip down the arrangements surrounding their velvety psych melodies till simple keyboard notes are left bare. In a recent Impose interview about the new album, guitarist-vocalist Jack Bouboushian described the band’s music as trying to “flow between ecstatic/joyful and dark/ugly/difficult.” On the single “React,” Crown Larks nudge a slow-boiling melody built on a somnambulant guitar line until it unravels into a nervy near freakout. The song speeds up and slows down, folding in glimmers of joy and shards of darkness.”
-Leor Galil, Chicago Reader, 2017
