Ten Kills the Pack Searches for a Deeper Meaning on 'Life, Death & Afterwards'
The EP is out now via Nettwerk
Published Feb 26, 2021Contemporary folk artist Ten Kills the Pack — a.k.a. Toronto's Sean Sroka — is back with new material. His latest EP Life, Death & Afterwards is out today via Nettwerk, and you can listen to it in full here at Exclaim!
On Life, Death, & Afterwards, Sroka searches for purpose, clarity and growth as he delves into the heaviest sides of his subjects, tackling the beginning and end of a relationship, new friendships, familial relationships, mental health struggles and learning from the past. By weaving together universal themes, Sroka has established Ten Kills the Pack as a leading voice in modern folk music.
During recording sessions for the EP, Sroka and producer Dave Cerminara focused on organic tones, combining violin, trumpet, and baritone sax, which Sroka favours for his live shows to complement his guitar and occasional piano. The resulting effort is a lush, textured group of songs with much to offer.
