Five-piece indy rock band The Crooks hail from Chesterfield, England, best known for the famous crooked spire of the Church of St Mary and All Saints, though if the band has its way, then they’ll topple it.
Jacko, Chris Stones, Duncan Couch, Conor Fletcher and Jonathan Keele’s intent as The Crooks is to “deliver a villainously huge melodic, anthemic wall of sound”, while dawing influence from the likes of DMA’s, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Verve topped off with a nicely adopted punk tinge,
2019 saw the band release a series of singles, most recently an edgy rock anthem called ‘Silhouette Sunshine’. That was the follow-up single to the expressive ballad ‘She Walks Alone’ that received over 26,000 streams in its first week on Spotify alone, something of an achievement for a band only nine months old. ‘In Time’ was another single release, all receiving international radio airplay.
On 1st March they deliver their latest single, ‘Frankie’, that will be out on Golden Robot Records. According to those in the know: “‘Frankie’ is a track that is built around a fiery guitar solo, and a cacophony of sounds but begins with a hint of mysteria. The carefulness and alluring licks of the guitar create an atmospheric pulse before being pelted into a whirlwind of rock ‘n’ roll swagger. The smooth but endearing vocals wrap around the haunting riffs and it’s by far the most interesting track by The Crooks yet.”
