Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Crux. I discovered this band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the energy of their music.
This band offers a powerful modern and epic sound, a rock with no strings attached.
The chord progression and melodic intuitions are very interesting and the listener is entertained from the first to the last second.
Listening to their songs is like drinking a shot of tequila, all in one go.
Their new Ep ‘Death At The Cash Machine’ is a very coherent work and has a dark atmosphere as its theme in my opinion.
The guitars ventures into powerful crepuscular riffs and the melodic line of the voice is very intricate and sinuously moves on the musical ‘carpet’.
It feels like this band spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable sonic understanding.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone, this band has a bright future ahead of them.
Death At The Cash Machine is Crux’s Ep Out Now!
Innovative and Powerful!
Listening to Crux, you can hear their deep but varied influences. Max’s vocal style draws heavily on a Matt Bellamy/Thom Yorke/Jeff Buckley synthesis. Jake’s rapid finger style playing is straight out of Dire Straits, Hallam’s bass chops trace back to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Joe’s obsession with Progressive Rock is always creeping into his drumming. Massive riffs, classical piano, slap bass, and political rhetoric all come together in Crux’s sound.
