The Rosy Crucifixion - New Music "Introducing"


Here's a band I don't know too much about, The Rosy Crucifixion are from Glasgow and contain four human beings (that's from a live video I found on youtube). That's about it so far, but an unofficial bio sums up their sounds wonderfully so I'm going to copy and paste it here as my introduction "Amidst a tsunami of dischordant guitars and thundering toms, The Rosy Crucifixion conjure up the ghosts of Tammy Wynette and Link Wray fighting over the last bottle of tequila in the roadhouse at Twin Peaks".

The Rosy Crucifixion have played with and fit nicely within the same musical palette as fellow Glaswegian bands featured here, Palms and Aggi Doom (who coincidently have a split tape out via Winning Sperm Party that I'm planning on writing about soon...), with a handful of demos on Soundcloud to fall in love with, their part dark, moody / part playful psychedelic soundscapes blend shambolic garage rock with post punk rhythms to delicious effect.

My favourite is "Sunshine Fuck Off" which is absolutely ace with spindly guitar noise, galloping drums and a catchy as hell jumping bass rhythm which is sure to imprint itself in your brain just as much as the "woo woo" harmonies, with the skittish "Winners" equally brilliant too, while the menacing side of the band is seen on "Curses", dominated by tense guitar and languid drums, moody and echoey the spacious air penetrates like an early Joy Division demo. Two different sides, one equally great set of demos. Listen below.
