Gloomy weather and early-morning temp-jobs make The Narrator's first EP, "Youth City Fire", ferocious. The foursome create angst-packed music that has the sound of urgent 17-year-olds screaming inside of sealed-up cars at 3:30 a.m., but with fewer bruises to show for it. Nothing's shrugged off, everything's terrible and the windows won't roll down. Even the scratchier tunes contain an infectious energy that is responsible for carving The Narrator's year-and-a-half-old sound into the grain of Chicago's rock scene.
