AU Magazine Listen: Crypts – ‘Fancy’
Advance warning on a seriously dark new band and album from ex-These Arms Are Snakes vocalist Steve Snere. Crypts, completed by programmer Bryce Brown and visual artist Nick Bartoletti, release their self-titled debut on September 4 via Sargent House with the video for ‘Fancy’ available to check out below.
Recorded in Seattle with producer Erik Blood (the man behind Shabazz Palaces’ 2011 album Black Up), Crypts mixes weighty bass drones, chopped hip-hop and oppressive electronica which is as visceral as the early punk from which Snere takes his cues. Keep up over on the official website.
