VIDEO: “Dance Down” – 

 

CROSSS is a Canadian trio who take inspiration from 70’s proto-drone, lo-fi indie, noise and metal. Their dirge, punishing volume, and composition intensity is offset by haunting and memorable vocal melodies. Prodigious drumming and ambitious improvised guitar create moments of complex prolonged trance and meditative phrase.
The group began in Halifax, Canada in 2012 as a duo, but following several relocations and lineup shifts, is now based in Toronto Canada and has grown into a trio.
CROSSS have toured extensively in Canada and the USA, and have shared the stage with Viet Cong, Built To Spill, Moon Duo, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, Dirty Beaches, Pop1280, and Oneida, earning the reputation as a captivating live band that is not to be missed.

CROSSS’ debut 12 ” Obsidian Spectre was released on Telephone Explosion in 2013. Their follow-up LP titled LO will be release on June 16th, 2015.

“Crosss conjure the sound of empires crumbling-theirs is a tremorous, ominous, eerily isolating squall tailor-made for dilapidated castles rotting from mildew and overrun with vermin. The Toronto-via-Halifax trio’s sludgy psych-rock may be too alternately scabrous and cerebral to be classified as metal, unless you’re talking about the actual physical material: This stuff is leaden and impenetrable, with visible signs of rusting and corrosion.” -Pitchfork
