Considering Wrexham is only a few miles down the road from a British north east dripping in musical mythology, there hasn’t been much to smile about for the kids across the Welsh border. That was until Crosbi landed on the scene, giving Wales a new set of heroes. While everyone in Liverpool was busy sitting in The Coral’s corner, those in north Wales were sponging off the brows of their new idols.
So while you’re no doubt still scratching your heads in scepticism, bear in mind that for many, Crosbi have already passed the first junction on the road to success. Hailed by Radio 1 as the best unsigned band in Wales, the boys can finally scratch the ‘un’ from that last statement. Their debut single oozes a confident and charismatic stomp that clearly sets its stall out from the start. It’s like hearing The La’s play with all the rough edges of 'Definitely Maybe'-era Oasis still intact.
Andy Jones delivers his vocal laden with Welsh-Mersey vowels, sounding like no other frontman around, while producer Clint Boon has sprinkled his good-time vibes liberally across the entire two minutes and 50 seconds.
This is the Crosbi show. Make sure you’re part of their live studio audience.
