(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #1451: The Crookes

Following on from the first video from their forthcoming album ‘Soapbox’ in which their frontman George Waite had some, err, questionable attire, single ‘Play Dumb’ (reviewed here), The Crookes have a new promo out just in time for Valentine’s Day. ‘Holy Innocents’, track 5 on the Sheffield band’s yet to be released album, is a far more stoic affair, yet with just the right tinges of melancholy; the black and white film from their time recording the album in the remote mountains of Northern Italy are suitably bleak. I have further thoughts on the song, but you’ll have to wait until my review of ‘Soapbox’ posts in the coming weeks to read them.

Third Crookes album ‘Soapbox’ will be released on the 14th of April on Fierce Panda. After appearing at their third SXSW next month, the group are on tour in the UK in April and May, with a European leg scheduled between the end of the April UK stretch and a homecoming show at Sheffield Leadmill on the 31st of May.
