Brooklyn’s Crumb – aka Lila Ramani (guitar, vocals), Brian Aronow (synth, keys, sax), Jesse Brotter (bass), and Jonathan Gilad (drums) – are back with the latest cut from their upcoming debut album, Jinx, and followup to recent singles from the LP, ‘Ghostride’, ‘Nina’ and ‘Part III’.
‘Fall Down’ is another psychedelic ear-pleaser, teamed with a suitably trippy visual directed and animated by Isaac Baird and Alex Futtersak, with illustrations by Baird and Andrew Benson.
Crumb is a collaboration between friends that came together in 2016 with the goal of developing and recording a collection of songs Ramani had written in high school and college, the work ultimately resulting in the band’s first two EPs: 2016’s Crumb and 2017’s Locket. Encouraged by the warm reception online and at shows, the band evolved into a full time touring and recording project.
June 2019 will see the release of Jinx, their first full-length album and best distillation to date of their singular blend of psych-rock and jazz. On Jinx, Ramani continues to helm the songwriting, with Aronow, Brotter, and Gilad each bringing distinctive ideas to match her ethereal, intimate vocals and luminous guitar lines. Informed by two years of nearly non-stop touring, the songs sweep and swell to capture the beguiling live spirit of Crumb shows, while taking listeners one step further down the band’s dizzying, hypnotic path.
Crumb will hit the road in September, touring across mainland Europe and the UK, coinciding with a performance at End Of The Road festival (full dates below).
