THE CRIMEA

Free? As If.

Turns out the Daily Mail featured the following review of The Crimea’s new album by Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody at the end of last year:

‘I think 2007 could well be the breakthrough year for the Crimea. The Londonbased band are releasing their second album, Secrets Of The Witching Hour, in February and it’s a wonderful collection of skewed pop songs. Lead singer Davey MacManus’s voice is ragged and sumptuous, and his lyrics morph the mundane into something wildly surreal. At its heart, it’s classic British pop music lush, elegant and gorgeous but it has a dark, disturbing undercurrent, like a wall-rattling party in the basement of a luxurious Georgian townhouse. The Crimea’s music is devilishly brilliant, like all great pop.’ Look out for the new album Secrets Of The Witching Hour will be available in its entirety as a free download from the band’s website from February 14. A three-week UK tour kicks off later that month.

I don’t know about the whole album (hell, as far as I know it’s not even finished yet) but there’s deffinately one song available for free. Sorry to dissapoint anyone. See the previous post, then punish yourself for believing any tabloid lies.
