Hailing from the fertile musical plains of South East London, The Crow Family met at music college, but their musicianship is there to serve the song, not vice versa.
Combining up-beat guitar driven pop with a sense of the sinister, the new single places two beloved TV presenters at the heart of a wicked government department, whose anodyne output keeps us compliant and under control. If you’re for a female vocal to deliver laid back understatement followed by a rousing chorus, look no further than Connie Chatwin.
Their songs may skip between classic rock, indie pop and jazz inflected acoustic ballads, but they are united by a love of strong melody and storytelling. Lush strings and vocal harmonies offer engaging and unexpected changes of colour. Lyrics addressing issues such as America’s love affair with guns, religion and today’s fame hungry youth may make uncomfortable listening for some, but if the review above is anything to go by, plenty of others will get behind the message.
Catch a sneak peek of what we are talking about on their new quirky, live music video for “Believe, It’s Real”.
