Crux have burst onto the music scene in Newcastle over the past year with their debut EP, released in October 2021, receiving praise and airplay from the likes of Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 and Nicky Roberts, BBC Newcastle.
The band are gaining momentum, having recently headlined gigs at the O2 Academy2 in Newcastle, The Engine Room in North Shields, and supported Sam Fender at The Surf Cafe.
Listening to Crux, you can hear their deep but varied influences, with Max’s vocal style drawing heavily on a Matt Bellamy, Thom Yorke, Jeff Buckley, and punk flavours. Jake’s rapid finger-style guitar playing could be straight out of Dire Straits, Hallam’s bass chops trace back to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Joe’s obsession with prog-rock creeps into his drumming. Massive riffs, classical piano, heavy bass lines, and political rhetoric come together in Crux’s sound.
“Death at the Cash Machine is a beast of a six-track EP” – NARC Magazine
“Crux are an act that any listener can get behind. Not only do they have enviable talent and riffs for days, but the guys are genuinely conscious human beings. Stay tuned for more in the coming year.” –Ear To The Ground Music
