Crumb are one of those rare bands who had a fully-realized sound right out the gate. Their pair of early EP’s, 2016’s Crumb and 2017’s Locket, found a wholly unique middle pathway between dream-pop, psych-rock, indie-rock, and jazz. Jinx felt like the quartet paring back their sprawling songwriting into more succinct pop songs, and “Trophy” sounds like a continuation of that refined trajectory.
Now, they share a pair of new tracks, ‘Balloon’ and ‘BNR’. The latter comes with an accompanying video directed by Joe Mischo.
