Leeds quartet Crake share their new single “Winter’s Song” from their forthcoming debut album Humans Worst Habits. It’s a song suffused with an understated sense of iridescent wistful beauty and poetic lyrics that connect on a deep level. You certainly get a sense of why Big Thief’s Buck Meek was so entranced by the band that he invited them to support Big Thief on their UK and EU tour in 2019.
Led by singer-songwriter Rowan Sandle, their debut album promises to touch on big themes. The PR states “Much of the forthcoming album revolves around the death of Sandle’s friend Anna, who died in Syria after being hit by a Turkish airstrike. Anna was working for a woman’s liberation group in the war-stricken country when the tragedy took place. ‘Humans’ Worst Habits’ explores the grief that followed and the lessons learnt from dealing with such a significant loss.”
The album arrives via Fika Recordings on April 8th.
