Manchester's gothic three kings Crimsons are back with new track Idle Ways

Manchester's gothic pop kings, Crimsons released their latest track Idle Ways on October 24 just a few months after their debut single, I Bring The Rain that puzzled and hooked listeners to the cores.

Sounding like Tim Burton and Jack White decided to barf some flower power Crimsons add their own classic rock'n'roller twist to keep us on our toes.

Starting out in 2015, their debut release gave us a taste as to what to expect but Idle Ways is a somewhat darker, lonesome wayward tune that can't help but wiggle its way into a fable of its own.

Front-man Sam Cartwright's harrowing vocals of horror coo and spark a depressed reaction from his murmuring guitar chords while Lucas Berry's intangible bass line fiddles its way through the underlying death song. 

With a totally respectable indie beat drummer Adam Kenny brings a lighter side to the track but keeps the sombre sound at an alarming level allowing the threesome to remain fully pledged to their "garage" sound.
