Official promo video for Crookers‘ forthcoming single featuring Miike Snow, “Remedy“, out Feb 22nd premiered on NME.com today. Check it out!
Both “The Shrew” and “So Derobe” pick up where “Hyph Mngo” left off. Catchy melodies and soulful bass lines grow as the arrangement’s develop. Big drops, super heavy drum programming and grooves that sound like only Joy Orbison. Orbison wears his influences on his sleeve yet re-wraps them in his own unique style. The EP is due to be released on February 22nd on Aus Music.
You can also preview an unreleased track, “Waxes & Wanes” here:
