H&H // WATCH: PLAY DUMB – THE CROOKES
After the announcement of their third studio album ‘Soapbox’ earlier this week, The Crookes have premiered their first single ‘Play Dumb‘.
The track was launched earlier today (13th January) on Steve Lamacq‘s BBC 6Music show and showcases the fine Newpop noise the band have shaped with their previous releases, layered with a snarling melody and jangling guitar riffs, whilst the video sees the resentful lyrics echoed as George Waite is majestically transformed into the figure “pretty enough to play dumb”.
The track is set for release on 3rd March, with ‘Soapbox’ following on 14th April and a tour of the UK and Europe, details of which will be announced this Wednesday (15th).
