Wake Child – “In the End”

Boston trio Wake Child puts a showcase on throughout new track “In the End”. Flowing with structural variety, the trickling suaveness of the first vocal-laden verses gives way into a halted bridge and more muscle-y take on the verse in the primary hook, with a bluesy organ kicking in around 01:50, followed by a sparse guitar-only bridge. It’s a sound that reminds of !!! (Chk Chk Chk)’s developmental rock tendencies, with pulsating slabs of guitars being persistent over moments of both halted beauty and ceaseless energy. Additionally, with a vocal croon that reminds tonally of a more rock-oriented Jeff Buckley, there’s very little not to enjoy here. “In the End” punches from the get-go and never stops.
