Vocalist Elaiza Santos’ disaffected delivery contrasts with ferocious blows to the snare drum and corresponding spasmodic fits of Game Boy blips.” – Wondering Sound
“…there’s good enough reason to believe this new project will rule super hard.”
– The Le Sigh
Anamanaguchi created (more than) a cult following by mixing indie rock guitars with sounds produced by a hacked old Nintendo gaming console, NYC trio Crying
could very easily take 8 bit indie rock to new heights.” – The Deli NYC, Record of the Month

The Crying formula is simple: drench an entry-level Motown song in creamy distortion, completely flip the vocal dynamics without losing any of the juicy flavor, and squirt in a few too many twisted melodies played out of a programmed Game Boy. Mixing regal riffs and tasty beats with soft vocals, intimate lyrics (often times crushingly so), and harsh but sparkling synth lines, the New York power trio strikes a stylistic balance between decades and genres, each song bearing the gifts of timelessness and formal disrespect.  Joining vocalist Elaiza Santos from Whatever, Dad, is drummer Nick Corbo of Spook Houses and LVL UP, and guitarist/Game Boy player Ryan Galloway.

Get Olde Second Wind, Crying’s first Run For Cover release, works as both an anthology and a cohesive work, compiling the critically acclaimed self-released EP, “Get Olde,” and its brand new, darker and danker sequel, “Second Wind.”

Crying will be on tour with Modern Baseball next month.
