AUDIO: CRLSS – “Memory Tap Scars”
Grunge pop duo CRLSS are out with a new record. In visceral display and soaked in reverb these songs reflect powerlessness, past traumas, nostalgic pain, and self-deprecation. Vocalist Ryan King has said this is his proudest work yet; he truly basks in guitar-driven neo-psychedelia that well accommodates his tortured lyrics about insidious demons. Like past releases, there’s plenty of electronic manipulation as well to enhance the idea that “scars” are being picked at. CRLSS (and Cllctive Records in general) have been delivering the world so music this year and we hope it’s not over for them yet.
