The Crookes new record demands you forget everything you know about them.
The band’s fourth album, Lucky Ones, will be released on 29th January on Anywhere Records (UK/Europe) and Modern Outsider (U.S.). The impulse to champion the wanderer continues, however, the outsider is completely immersed in a world of possibility. From Brighton Beach to Bakerloo, the first single ‘I Wanna Waste My Time On You’ is a pertinent departure from the melancholy, and reinvents romance in a bold and engaging light.
The band has developed loyal and valued support from print, online and radio media around the world, extending to fashion brands such as Burberry and Ben Sherman. BBC Radio’s Steve Lamacq called them “one of the most hardworking and prolific bands of the underground.” Nylon Magazine labelled them “potential leaders of England’s smart, taut ‘New-Pop’ movement” and Popmatters simply insisted they make “near-perfect guitar pop.”
THE CROOKES PLAY THE RAINBOW COURTYARD BIRMINGHAM ON FRIDAY 5TH FEB 2016. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
