CRUISR share new single “Take That” along with a re-recording of “The Fritz”
I’ve been a fan of Philly indie-pop juggernauts CRUISR since they still had the E in their name. I remember hearing their song “The Fritz” from their self-titled EP four years ago, and its been stuck in my head since. Today, they shared another catchy new single, “Take That,” along with a re-recording of “The Fritz” as a B-Side.
“Take That” continues with the band’s brand of poppy windows-down surf rock, similar to their hit “All Over,” but with more of a dance-based beat. Vocalist Andy States sings “We can make the rules, we can break them too” in a youthful voice that makes you want to throw all your cares to the wind. On “The Fritz,” the band turns up the engines with driving reverbed guitars and a similarly breezey backbeat.
(ICYMI: CRUISR guitarist Bruno Catrambone’s project Former Belle also just released a great new EP titled “Foreign Bed” which you can listen to here.)
CRUISR will be playing a free show at the Deschutes Brewery Street Pub on June 11th. For more information, check out the XPN Concert Calendar.
