New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Emerging Manchester band crush craft a refreshing heart on its sleeve shoegaze sound that's peppered with nods to 80s alt-pop and jazz-inspired indie. They release their latest single 'All My Plants Are Dead' on the 1st of May 2020, listen to it below. It's the sister track to their August 2019 release 'Glue', a track dubbed "grunge-pop at its best" (BBC Introducing). Drawing comparisons to Diiv, The Cure and Alvvays, crush look set to carve out their own ambient noise void into the UKs underground music scene.

'All My Plants Are Dead' is a bittersweet yet discordant offering, where the addictive and wistful vocals of Amber Warren blend with the jangle of Arthur Boyd's carefree cartwheeling guitars. The enveloping verses are woven with floating vocals infused with a message of empathy and understanding and supple percussion. Punctuated by the tight and punching chorus': an interlude section inspired by William S.Burroughs 'Naked Lunch' is followed by a cathartic noise outro that reimagines the sweet musical introduction to the song, bringing it full circle. Bright, airy and beguiling, it's a highly promising new chapter for crush, you are sure to fall head over heels for.

The band say;

'The song focuses on the idea of the cold human race and an increasingly insular society. It's about struggling to look after yourself as much as it is struggling to look after your houseplants. Really just a message of looking after and understanding each other a bit better, and a critique of how modern living at times can make this an unattractive and hard to achieve concept.'

Formed in 2018 after meeting at university, young Manchester band crush have released three singles so far amassing 145,000 streams on Spotify. Their music has seen regular support from BBC Introducing Manchester, Amazing Radio, and blogs including Dork and NBHAP. Gigging regularly around the North of England has seen them wow audiences at events including The Sesh in Hull and Manchesters Stay Fresh Fest, as well as support slots with Peaness, Far Caspian and Low Hummer. Their captivating live sound has also recently been captured in a session with Delinquent Magazine which is scheduled for release in March.
