Pack of Wolves, “Not Right Now”
The music of Chattanooga blues rock band Pack of Wolves starts slowly, with just the barest glimmer of the storm to come. But soon enough, the music rises and singer Tootsie Von Comare’s ferocious voice pushes everything away and you quickly become overwhelmed by the band’s immense sense of musical scale. There’s nothing small or subtle; their music is loud, wild and growls at you from the shadows before pouncing unawares. They combine a handful of genres to create something unique and rooted in their various preferences. But Pack of Wolves isn’t merely the vessel for a collection of influences; it’s a tangible medium for the expression of a truly refreshing and utterly singular musical perception.
The band is set to release an album of new material sometime in the new year, and you can hear some of the songs now through their website. In particular, “Not Right Now” is a perfect example of the band’s stunningly incendiary sound. Led by Von Comare’s rafter-toppling vocals, the track roars and stomps through a garage rock and blues landscape marked by an apoplectic rhythmic atmosphere. Constructed until each part glistens and is set afire in the morning sun, “Not Right Now” finds the band pushing past any sense of influence and becoming their own individual entity—there’s nothing and no one left to draw from. The band is fully on its own in terms of aesthetic, and they couldn’t be happier about it.
