UPCOMING! Foxygen + CRUMBS at Il Motore

UPCOMING! Foxygen + CRUMBS at Il Motore | Wednesday, May 8th


At once melodic, atmospheric, strange, and catchy, Queens-based Foxygen’s sound is quite unique. They flirt with the concept of psychedelism with great ease, they alter between very upfront and very reverby vocals within the same song, they sing and use an impressive amount of both traditional instruments and weird sounds… they are a lot of fun, indeed.

As for CRUMBS, it has a much gloomier approach. Its members rely on stout drums, creepy vocals, and original use of an array of percussions and a surprising selection of instruments, including the banjo and the trombone. Add a bunch of Man Man-style sing-alongs and a very eloquent melodic touch, and you got it. It is delicate at times, powerful at others.

If such descriptions speak to you, be sure to be at Il Motore on May 8th, as the two acts will share the stage for your ears’ pleasure.
