The band will release their new album Peek on August 23rd, today they have given us a taste with “Get Close.” CRX will play tracks off the release in Los Angeles and New York.

Drawing on a mutual obsession with everything from Remain In Light by Talking Heads and Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) by David Bowie, the boys unlocked a new level of chemistry in the studio. “The recording was very different, because we made a big deal of tracking it as live as possible,” Darian continues. “We also let go and embraced some of these really cool influences that took us into the stratosphere. It was a combination of writing for over a year, getting out of our heads, and knowing what we wanted to sound like.” “The influence of Darian and Jon was prevalent in the recording and arrangement,” adds Nick. “I was more controlling on the first record. This is everybody in a room.”

Following the release of Peek, CRX will be returning to the stage and will be performing new material live at New York City’s Mercury Lounge on September 6th and in Los Angeles at The Echo on September 13th. For more information go to
