Rock ‘n roll has always reflected disgruntled youth and its rockers often create sounds that are mimetic of their inner state – what is experienced in the day-to-day. For their first release, rightly named, ‘Mass Hysteria’, Spiritual Cramp relates this state of unease in a seemingly at ease system. The sounds borrow from the past, echoes of late 70’s / early 80’s working class rock and punk, which function on the upbeat, showcasing very bright guitars yet generating darker vocal rhythms and darker patterning.
Blowing up the Bay Area, Spiritual Cramp have quickly turned heads for their wild and unforgettable live shows up and down Cali’s coast — landing them a winter tour with American Nightmare and Pissed Jeans.
Play loud + stay tuned.
