Listen: The Raised By Wolves’ Sadie Hawkins in Full


When Washington, D.C. duo The Raised By Wolves’ video for “Freddy Freaker” dropped earlier this week, the song once again worked its way pretty impressively into our skulls. In it we hear bits of Elliott Smith, and the Flaming Lips, but also — curiously — The Police. The track, along with “Stung (Song For Him)” is a stand out on the band’s 9-song debut album Sadie Hawkins (released July of last year), which we’re happy to share here in full here. The Raised By Wolves are two lifelong friends — Dusty Durston (vocals, drums) and Ben Eskin (guitar, bass, keys, backing vocals) — who’ve been writing music together since middle school, and on Hawkins that easy familiarity with one another’s music styles shine through. You can listen to the album and watch “Freddy Freaker” below. Enjoy!
