The latest self-titled EP from duo Crushing Blows is due for release 12th November through their own label Super Heavy Weight Records. Formed back in 2010 they are Andrew Foster on drums, vocals and keyboard and Chris Jones on guitar and vocals. They have worked hard to make their own sound and it has come out as a bit of an elecro pop indie punk post rock fusion which doesn’t quite describe it fully but it’s as close as I can get.
The EP is quirky in places, deeply melodic in others, and just a real mish mash of sounds. Bit of an odd one but worth a listen as it’s not like anything else out there and isn’t too bad really.
