Raised by Wolves

You cannot listen to Voxtrot without thinking of the Smiths or Belle & Sebastian--distinct echoes of each are all over this Austin quartet's Raised by Wolves EP. But when you hear their heights of soulful melancholy in treats like "Long Haul" and "Wrecking Force," it will become obvious they've outgrown the sum of their influences. They could easily be the heirs to the throne of moody, introspective pop. But more than that, they could easily be exactly what you've been waiting for.
