It’s been four years since south London-based Crushed Beaks released their debut album, ‘Scatter’, but with new album ‘The Other Room’, the band return in a confident mood. The vocals are more direct, lyrics more incisive and the overall theme of the album more confrontational. However, this confidence shouldn’t be mistaken for bravado, there is subtlety and introspection running through the album, even in the more direct tracks.
‘The Other Room’ is about seeing things as they really are, and facing up to the reality of the situation. Whether it’s facing fears or trying to empathise and see things from someone else’s perspective, the songs were shaped by the growing sense of division that was beginning to take hold around the world. Yet it’s not political – it’s about people and how they relate to one another, how they see themselves, and how those relationships are in a constant state of flux. It’s garage rock for seeing through walls. It sounds like Blur have got the fuzz pedals out and are having fun again.
Crushed Beaks’ ‘Honesty Box’ is released on 17th May, with album ‘The Other Room’ to follow on 9th August. The album will be released via Leeds-based label Clue Records (Avalanche Party, PLAZA, Van Houten, LOCALS) and is available to order from www.cluerecords.com.
