Bands To Watch #82: Crayon Rosary

By on Wednesday, 11th February 2009 at 10:24 am

I only had to listen to one song from Crayon Rosary to decide they were a great band. Having stumbled across their myspace page I listened to the only track available and was simply blown away by the astonishing vocals and melodic keyboard playing.

This track was called “New York City” and is one hell of a hit single. Although gentle, It’s an excellent listen and some perfectionist acoustic guitar playing compliments the keyboard and children’stoys that feature throughout the track. But this is not why you should check out the track. The harmonised vocals from the only band members, Keith and Brendan is absolutely superb and comparable to the likes of the beach boys.

The next thing to wonder is are they a one hit wonder? The answer is clearly no after listening to the rest of the material on offer. Tracks like “Siren Song” and “Beehive” display the consistent talent and professionalism that the two lads have to offer.  These tracks are also in the same soft indie/folk style that is so easy listening for the ear but the songs do not sound over produced and there is a purity about them which makes them a bit special.

Crayon Rosary are one of the most inventive indie artists out there and are probably the biggest spenders at Toymaster but yet their material is relatively unheard of.  However, I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before we see the duo making a big impact on the indie scene.
