The Crookes

Formed in 2008 in Sheffield, England, the Crookes consist of George Waite, Daniel Hopewell, Russell Bates and Tom Dakin. Heralded as a prominent group in the UK’s New Pop movement, their list of press accolades is extensive and their fan base apparently large and growing. Romanticism is heavy, with soaring melodies and strident lyrics (which even Noel Gallagher has praised), carried out by Waite’s undeniably strong vocal delivery. They stopped by to blast through some tunes and to chat with Maia about their new record.

Featured song: “Bear’s Blood”
