Band of The Month: The Crash Kings Return With Gorgeous ‘Half a Face’

Today we continue our Band of The Month series for August, with featured artists Los Angeles rockers The Crash Kings delivering a third, and perhaps best, performance from Bedrock LA studios.

We first brought you a beautiful version of “Hesitate” off the band’s remarkable Dark of The Daylight, and followed with the perfectly balanced piano-pop gem “Some Call It Love”. This time around, brothers Tony Beliveau (vocal/keyboards) and Mike Beliveau (bass), alongside drummer Tommy Rose, give new life to the second single from their Live Nudes EP, released earlier this year.

Refreshingly untethered from the standard guitar-driven rock sound – because they don’t actually use guitars – The Crash Kings’ light psychedelica weaves through Tony’s endearing pop-hook rich melodies built on Mike’s thick, fuzzy bass foundation and Tommy’s metronomically tight kitwork. After the success of Live Nudes, the guys settled in to work on their third album, to be released in late 2015.

Check out a gorgeous take on “Half a Face,” exclusively on CraveOnline:
