Crumb – “Crushxd”


Before today, the New York indie band Crumb hadn’t released a song in two years. That changes with “Crushxd,” a hallucinatory new track that reminds me a bit of Broadcast and Men I Trust. Produced by Jonathan Rado and Johnscott, the song is inspired by an incident that haunted Crumb’s first big US tour in 2018.

As the band explains:

We were beginning to write the instrumental to a new song and started playing it live every night. It didn’t have any words yet, just a nice techno groove. On our way to one of those shows, a little turtle appeared out of nowhere and crossed in front of our car – it was crushed instantly. After that experience, Lila wrote the words to the song. The song is a celebration of the turtle’s life, honoring its long n beautiful journey on the road up until its tragic death. LONG LIVE TURTLE.
