Mixing together dance-worthy post-punk and coldwave, Creux Lies have a great sound that could introduce both genres to a new audience. In a way, the quartet from Berlin reminds me of Depeche Mode but slightly darker and with the potential to be more unhinged. Ean’s vocals power through the synths, drums and guitars like a foghorn. They have that low bass boom that fits coldwave music so well and allows lighter synths usually found in dance music to cascade in and not feel cheesy.
‘Misunderstanding’ is the new single from Creux Lies and is about the moment where misunderstanding something ironically leads to clarity and a moment of authenticity. It’s the lead single from their forthcoming album ‘Goodbye Devine’ which is due for release on 8th October. The single is out now though and it is their first release on the new label Freakwave. Freakwave is to specialise in coldwave and post-punk so Cruex Lies is the perfect fit.
