"Halloween," a track from Wolf Diamond's forthcoming Linda EP displays Luke Carr's musical proficiency and penchant for simple yet evocative lyrics. The song is masterfully crafted and precise in its execution without losing the warmth of a DIY solo project. The influence of fellow SUNY Purchase alumna Porches and Mitski can be felt through the music's reference to misguided adolescent indiscretion and its sonic diversity. The track opens with a surf-rock inspired riff quickly followed by a contrasting distorted bass line. The mingling of these two light and heavy elements produces a mischievous glow perfectly suited to the song's title. Carr's brooding, Beach House reminiscent vocals paint vivid images of youthful antics created to extinguish postmodern ennui.
