Ahead of their new album due this fall, Sacramento post-punk / wave pop band Creux Lies previews the lead track ‘Misunderstanding’ with a new music video.
Creux Lies is Ean Clevenger (vocals, programming), Barry Crider (guitars, vocals), Kyle Vorst (bass), and David Wright (synth, drum programming), and their reverb-laden guitar work, creative synth structures, and dynamic vocals recall the best from 80’s-early 90’s dark pop and post-punk for fans of ACTORS, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Ride, Soft Kill, She Past Away, and Light Asylum.
“Misunderstanding emerged from part of this strange writing session/coping moment during the world shut down, awakened with this “whoa oh, oh oh” in my head from a dream and went to the computer just after dawn. As with many tracks on this latest album, my tentative register was landing a bit lower from trying to sing it out in the early morning hours. So, the profound moody thing resonated, and the song unfolded around my fingers on the synths,” says Ean Clevenger.
‘Misunderstanding’ will be available across streaming platforms on July 23. The new LP Goodbye Divine can be pre-ordered now and will be released October 8, 2021 via Freakwave, a Berlin-based label that is part of the Schubert Music Europe group.
