"...One thing I learned the more time I spent with Sroka outside of the rehearsal room, was the way his songs grew organically. When you walk with Sroka outside on a busy street, he might point out things he finds interesting, like a funny sign or something weird that a stranger says in passing. You’ll have a conversation about it and then forget about it a short while after. It’s not until a couple days later when he pulls you aside to show you a new song he’s been working on, and it’s about that moment you shared the other day, do you realize he’s been thinking about that the whole time.
He lives in those moments, those real conversations about adolescent fears, growing up and faltering relationships. Ten Kills the Pack is for every late night bar dweller, every person unsure about their “path” and for every introspective human being overanalyzing their life choices. It’s what myself and others have always connected with his music so easily. Drawing from his all-time influences such as Stan Rogers, early Kings of Leon, Dylan, or Laura Marling, Sroka is a modern day poet, commenting on what it means to be a complex human in the modern age."
