Odd Crew Premiere Morning Lights

Sofia, Bulgaria-based Odd Crew has premiered a video for ‘Morning Lights‘ – the band’s first single taken from their forthcoming, sixth studio album Dark Matters (Part 1), that is slated for a 2022 release on Drakkar Entertainment.

Apparently, the new album will be ‘heavier, slow and rough’as the melancholic, emotional and facets of their first single and album opener proves: The song represents the band – who grew up together since they were kids – in a light of despair, struggling for a brighter future. The distinguished vocal parts and epic riffs showcase a first taste of the band’s new, matured direction.
“I had an emotional outburst and I wrote the riffs for the song in exactly seven minutes,” said guitarist/backing vocalist Vasil Parvanovski. “Then I wasted hours sorting and reshaping them until I realised that the original version was the best and they didn’t need to be adjusted.”

“The gloomy footage in the beginning of the video is deeply connected to the band as it was shot in the neighbourhood where we met and grew up”, noted vocalist Vasko Raykov.

Following five studio records, two DVDs and countless live shows over more than two decades, Dark Matters (Part 1) should ensure Odd Crew – Also featuring Martin Stoyanov on bass/backing vocals and Boyan ‘Bonzy’ Georgiev on drums –  go beyond being one of Bulgaria’s best kept heavy rock and metal secrets.

Tracks featured on Dark Matters (Part 1) are: Morning Lights’, ‘Faith Beneath Me’, ‘The Moment’, ‘Wasted Days’, ‘In Your Brain’, ‘Walk A Mile’, ‘Farewell’ and ‘Desert Skies’.
