The Crookes Share ‘Lucky Ones’

The Crookes new record demands you forget everything you know about them. Their fourth album, ‘Lucky Ones’, will be released on 29th January on Anywhere Records (UK/Europe) and Modern Outsider (U.S.). The impulse to champion the wanderer continues, however, the outsider is completely immersed in a world of possibility. Take the innocence of “Chasing After Ghosts” (2011), the fun of “Hold Fast” (2012), and the grit of “Soapbox” (2014), and you have a pop album to accent a brand new start for The Crookes.

From Brighton Beach to Bakerloo, the first single ‘I Wanna Waste My Time On You’ is a pertinent departure from the melancholy, and reinvents Romance in a bold and engaging light. Aesthetically drenched in colour, Hopewell’s lyrics are forever awash with imagery, as Waite’s vocal delivery beds and verves the line: “if they say we’re trash, we’ll float on the Breeze.”

Waite’s dulcet, honeyed tones are all over the album, and although still a melodically sound, there is something less reticent about the band. The Crookes have made a serious statement with these collection of songs, and look set to have a strong 2016.
