Crux brings a style of rock to us that you might have missed. Probably because they like creating something fresh, storytelling unique. Their latest single shows us a magic that becomes instantly catchy, especially because they have never sounded more like themselves. This is their latest single, Lost Souls.
There is a flavour to this track that makes it feel like a track by The Wombats. This post-punk air fills the air, especially the melody. Vocals are on the higher register, trying to create this elastic trampoline sound you want to bounce off of. We immediately get to the chorus as a treat, and that will stay etched in your mind forever. There is a multi-layered symphony arrangement that becomes more apparent when you’re in the midst of the blend. Crux are coming together in a style that would be natural, but creates this whirlwind of surprises. The harmonics flow in nicely, the bass line giving a beautiful dimension to the song. Quick suggestion, if you’re listening to this single, it pairs very well with Slaving Away. It shows the kind of range and versatility the band brings, while constantly building a brilliant catalogue of music.
Crux can be enjoyed with their exciting approach to rock and smooth instrumental work. Living in Dystopia & Empty Home are some other delicious tracks you should enjoy by this band. The movie Sunny (2011) would be great for this track. You can listen to their single and follow them for more like this, definitely to come!
