Merging psych, garage, lo-fi, prog, and countless other influence, the group easily maintains consistency despite a complete inability to be pinned to any specific movement or trend...
Unashamed, unafraid, gritty hotmess melodies that take cues from The Stooges, Joe Cocker, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (rest his soul) and Ozzy Osbourne.
Long Beach’s Crystal Antlers have mastered the art of thrash, that combustible build-up of noise and melody that so many other have tried to harness, only to fail in a miserable pool of fuzzy annoyance.
“This is Crystal Antlers, and they sound to these ears like bratty young brothers of Comets On Fire – ie totally hotwired and fried psychedelic punks – only with a little of the noise removed for fractional extra clarity”
