Track: Crows – Room 156

Jono White

After returning last month after 3 long years with new single ‘Slowly Separate’, Crows have shared the next single ‘Room 156’, to be taken from their long awaited second album Beware Believers due 1st April via Bad Vibrations Records

‘Room 156’ was inspired by singer James Cox’s past obsession with true crime, and old faith healers. It thunders through chanting lyrics that’ll result in a rabbit hole of your own. The video was made by Cuan and Angus who bring the tense background and feeling of being trapped to life.

“I used to be quite obsessed with true crime, and this song was kind of born out of researching H.H Holmes and the World Trades Hotel in the 1860’s where he would murder people staying at his hotel informally called ‘The Murder Castle’ ”,

James says of the new single. He adds,

“I also got quite obsessed with a faith healer from the early 1900’s called Reverend Major Jealous Divine and reading transcripts of his old sermons, so this is basically just a weird amalgamation of mad shit I read about.”

A throbbing track of fuzz guitars, heavy pounding drums and violent vocals. The verses bleed into the slick, glorious sounding chorus as the track lifts out of the heaviness before plunging back in with the deep bass.
