Both Franklin Hoier and Moselle Spiller of Brooklyn-based duo Crushed Out have a long line of family roots in music, but their electrific, folk-infused surf rock is anything but traditional. Their latest record, TEETH was recorded in the same New Hampshire barn that yielded their 2012 debut full-length, Want To Give, and was recorded using vintage mics and a 1/2” tape machine, but their sound is forward-thinking, never adhering to genre lines and consistently reworking itself into something new.
is set for release today, and in celebration of its release the band has debuted a video for album track “To Sing True Of Love.”
“Our new video for ‘To Sing True of Love’ is psychedelic spaghetti western meets Persian mystic poetry,” Hoier said. “The song concerns two characters walking through a desert together, each with the same question in mind; “does it take a wounded heart to sing true of love?”. In this journey they come to see that the questions are as, if not more important than the answers.”
