CROSS: “Pyre” b/w “Repetition”: 7”

I was trying to think of ways to not compare this to Masshysteri. Then I realized that it actually was the singer from Masshysteri. I loved that band and was completely unaware any members were already onto other projects. This single takes a departure from the seamless post-punk that I fell in love with when I first heard Masshysteri. There is a psychedelic element to these songs. Cross is a two-piece band exploring the more experimental side of post-punk and art punk without being obnoxious. It’s a great direction for these guys. Buy this record.
