Toronto-based singer-songwriter Ten Kills The Pack — the “city folk” project of Sean Sroka — released his debut EP Force Majeure last week.
“These songs have lived in different places, they’ve seen some shit,” Sroka told Exclaim! “We bounced from apartment to loft to apartment to record for a few tired hours each night. I think it contributed to the minimal and distinct tone of the EP. We tracked after working all day while drinking wine to keep pace and had to be quiet to avoid noise complaints from neighbours. This forced me to embrace new subtleties, and I think it’s where some of the intimacy and character comes from. It’s why I think the EP managed to capture the various lives you can live in any given city.”
