The Noise Beneath the Apple was so kind as to review I Will Carry You, the leading track on Blood Oath:
The Pucketts- I Will Carry You: Indie Single Review
Indie folk has never been sweeter. When the candy-coated duo of The Pucketts announce, to an un-alarmed concert hall audience that they are, in fact, married and blissfully in love, the room erupts with a simultaneous “aaaawhhh.” Their syrupy concoction gives us plenty to discuss, particularly in the lead single ‘I Will Carry You,’ which is leading the pack to the group’s debut EP release ‘Blood Oath.’
The track is an upbeat number, hopping along at a brisk pace. It has no hesitation to get to the enchanting ditty of a chorus, proving the band knows what they did right and are more than willing to show the listener immediately. When the song strips itself even further, we have a breakdown and the song’s highlight towards the last thirty seconds.
It’s a touching and beautiful number. If The Pucketts can keep their charisma and their optimistic synergy into the future, we may have another classy gem of a duo from the indie underworld of Chicago. If it isn’t something in the water, then it must be in the songs.

October has been crazy. We literally drove across the country and back in a span of ten days, then flew home to Atlanta for 3 days and back just in time to play a show at Red Line Tap. Check out our Instagram feed for some really beautiful pictures we took along the way.
We have a big show coming up at The Elbo Room on October 29- be sure to join us! This is the first time we'll be performing with full instrumentation (guitars AND piano. The pressure is officially on). A lovely and talented musician, Jeff Ruby, will be joining us all the way from Nashville- it's going to be an amazing show.
We've also got three radio gigs lined up! Radio Crystal Blue, Fearless Radio, and the Chicago Acoustic Underground have all invited us to be part of their shows, and we can't be more excited. Once we know our air dates, we'll be sure to post them here with links so you can listen in.
Have a funtastic Halloween, and come see us this Monday!
