CRUSH - New EP Out Soon, Available For Streaming

Austrian new wave/dream pop/post-punk band Crush will release a new EP entitled No Easy Way on 18th August via Numavi Records and Wilhelm Show Me The Major Label. Bitters-weet melodies, dissonant and unpredictable: Christina Lessiak's voice melts reverb and fuzz like a center shock melts cotton candy - No Easy Way! Stephen King's epic The Mist is having a (third?) revival and Crush provide its unofficial soundtrack.
From the mid till the end of the 80s anglophone, mostly british underground bands (Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance,...) got flushed well into top ten. All achieved something very rare, a combination of pop appeal and high demand, charts and avant-garde. A wall of sound and a sea of blinking effect pedals affected post-punk and new wave, they earned a recognized new sound. Crush go one step further and drown their instruments in reverb and delay, but never lose their song in the sound. Band members are also involved in Maneki Nekoc, Remedy, Catholic Guilt and Circle A. The entire EP is available for streaming and you can give it a listen at this location. Link
