Cwik traces his musical roots back to an adolescent interest in American folk music and UK pop/rock bands of the sixties. These influences show: his simple, sunny melodies and cozy guitars recall the Byrds and early Stones, and a touch of the psychedelic harks back to Revolver-era Beatles, Syd Barrett’s Floyd, and Donovan
Dogs At Large
Dogs At Large
“Overpass” exists wholly outside of the usual parameters of Chicago rock music. There are no jangly guitars or raspy vocals or thrashing percussion. No, Pirruccello and the rest of his band members have crafted a romantic, earnest sound. At times, the album sounds influenced by early post-punk luminaries like the Scottish band Orange Juice. But Dogs At Large seems to operate on a slower sonic wavelength, one that encourages their listeners to closely follow the intricate, melodic harmonies as much as the lyrics. And on tracks like “The Well,” the group is much more comfortable experimenting and taking bits and pieces of classic rock or alt-country. The musicality of a group like Dogs At Large can’t be taken for granted. A quick listen to the group’s newest record, or any of their past music confirms this. Once you’ve heard music this refreshing, everything else sounds stale in comparison." - Britt Julius, Chicago Tribune
