The Republic of Wolves

Bask Song Review

Simple Stereo

Released March 16, 2018

Review by Gabe Straight

Boston Rock Radio



To call Long Island natives The Republic of Wolves “alt rock” is selling themselves a little short. The band combines influences of post hardcore, garage rock, and a hint of grunge to form their sound. On the verge of releasing their latest effort Shrine the band released their first single from it “Bask” via The Noise.


Immediately, I’m hit with a crowd chorus and sinister minor-heavy guitar leads that paint a very clear picture. “Bask” is wonderfully evil, generously dark, and worthy of anyone’s attention. Once the chorus comes in, the post hardcore influences shine the brightest, being entirely lead by screams. One of the drawbacks from this chorus is the way it’s mixed. Whatever vocalist Billy Duprey was screaming, I couldn’t tell for the life of me what he was singing. The other hiccup in the song is how the song never quite grabbed me. I dug what I was hearing, but I wasn’t hooked. Following the chorus is the bridge, and where the song shines, continuing the minor guitar riff from the intro.


Overall, I’m looking forward to ROW’s release of Shrine. “Bask” has a lot of things going for it; it’s heavy and gloomy in all the right ways. What’s holding me back from being downright excited is the pace of the song. The riffs and melodies were great, but I wasn’t hooked. It was a song that was always on the cusp of really taking off. I have my fingers crossed the rest of Shrine has those earworms I’m looking for.
