Americana-baked, ballroom swagger with a penchant for screaming describes Elephant Gun. Metal-influenced folk pop works too. Country-punk seems a bit of a generalization, but fuck it. World/Inferno Friendship Society meets Aganst Me! for Chicagoland’s hippie punks. They’re an eight-piece rock band with too many influences to name. If Jared invites one more dude or lady into the mix we’ll kick his dick. No. Nevermind. It’s fine. Because as all-over-the-map as they may be, they know how to craft full-on records just as well as they do orchestral basement-rock. For that we are proud of them. Jared may keep his goods safe. For now.
