Crying #2 - Bloom


I featured Crying towards the end of July when they released their debut track "Bodega Run", it was swiftly followed by the release of the seven track EP Get Olde which I belatedly found last week, it offers a similarly short, sharp blast of 80's computer game soundtrack / meaty guitar riffs / sweetly sung vocals combination over fourteen breathless minutes, it's a bit hit and miss but Get Olde will certainly sound like nothing else you've heard this year.

Alongside the excellent "Bodega Run", "Bloom" exemplifies their unique 8-bit sound where heavy hitting drums propel a bristling, exciting Game Boy soundtrack melody set off perfectly by the gorgeous tones of vocalist Elaiza.

It's available on a pay-what-you-like download basis from Bandcamp with a cassette soon to be released by Double Double Whammy.
