From Brooklyn, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Crumb. A band that is akin to snuggling up in a warm blanket during a snowstorm. Crumb recently released their first full length album “Jinx” at the beginning of the summer, and it already has millions of plays. That is insane for a band who started releasing songs just 3 years ago, and only a handful of singles at that. I’d say they are ones to watch, but truly they have already been seen. Now for you to see them:
Deeply relaxing and psychedelic all in the same breath. All with a steady flow that keeps you engaged. I think that this style of Indie Rock can sometimes get stale if the song doesn’t progress fast enough or is afraid to change the formula. These are two pitfalls that Crumb avoids by keeping things always moving forward and they explore the sounds they put in their songs. Even in their songs with more simple beat patterns, they find room to keep momentum and pack the vocals in at just the right times. One of my favorite examples of this is in the song “Fall Down”.
If you’re feeling the music, I would highly recommend taking a listen to their full length album. It will take you less than 30 minutes to get through, and you’ll be happy you did. You might want to skip the first track, but everything after is sure to grasp you tightly with a firm yet gentle hug.
I’ve been feeling pretty exhausted lately. This whole life thing, you know? It comes at you through the cracks just when you think you’ve shut the door. Crumb has come to the rescue of my mind, filling the leaks in my head with soothing psychedelic sounds. It’s just what my brain needed, and I hope it is what yours needed too.
