Crosa Rosa

SUB-pop Nottingham trio, Crosa Rosa dropped their latest video for single, Simper Smiles at the beginning of the month, opening up a whole can of deranged worms into grass-roots music.

Starting out in 2014, the threesome have already toured the country and more so during last years festival period, all the while managing to pick up fans in high places, with the likes of Huw Stevens and Steve Lamacq both in favour of the garage sound.

Subterranean in essence, Simper Smiler submerges into darkness, definitely a track enraptured in anti-establishment. The strain of tormented vocals from front-man, Joe Weatherall and the mother of all basslines by Joe Fisher creates an addictive migraine that no-one can refuse.

Kooky keys and mind-bending beats totally play tribute to a Horror-Wytches super-group, forging alliances with a psych set of chords and an authoritative beat from Keegan Clarke.

Created by Dogbrain Videos, Broken Hands and Kagoule, the accompanying masterpiece is a distorted Blair Witch conundrum filmed in a ball pit - a perfect matrimony for Simper Smiler.
