Cross Record | Cups in the Sink (Video)

July 27, 2012 at 4:52 pm Leave a comment

Cross Record will be releasing a new record, “Be Good”, next month. But until then, you can watch the new video for the single “Cups In the Sink”. It’s exquisitely languid and dark, lead singer Emily Cross’ vocals oozing between the dark spaces, eerie waves of guitar reverb, barely audible rustling rattles, ominous percussion, and slow-march rhythm. It’s an intricate and intimate feeling track. Beauty on slow simmer. This is one of those rare cases where the PR-description of the band’s style is spot on. Listening to “Cup In the Sink” might remind you of Lower Dens’ front-woman Jana Hunter’s solo material, old Cat Power records, and a hint of Hope Sandoval. It’s a track in a sort of hyper-slow motion, in a constant state of disappearing. You can pre-order the album at Lay Flat in a variety of formats, including digital and vinyl. You can follow Cross Record at tumblr, and an official website. Looks like the video was created by James Kozar of thismotion.com. – David D. Robbins Jr.
