Crystal Cities – Who’s Gonna Save Us Now
Who’s Gonna Save Us Now by Crystal Cities is pretty ambition for a debut, I mean it’s a big song, like the big music way back when from the likes of The Waterboys circa Whole Of The Moon, not that it sounds like them but this is an epic endevour. The expansive, echoing production enhances the sweet chiming guitar riff and driving bassline. It’s a grower as well…believe me you’ll be hooked. The video is a perfect foil for the tune, putting me in mind of Walkabout and Picnic At Hanging Rock. Their new EP of the same name is also out right now.
As an aside, these guys spent several years in a garage, in the dark, working on this. Sweating, a lot. I mean it’s Australia, it’s bound to be hot sometimes. No wonder they’re so thin. Have a listen and you’ll know it was worth it. You could live in a garage here for a hundred years and never need a roll-on.
