The debut album from A Cricket in Times Square prove the band to be masters of the epic noise-enveloped rock song form. With ethereal vocals encircled by competing yet complementary guitars (clean melodic lines vs. power psych-fuzz), the
Seattle based quartet's songs confront post adolescent angst, ennui, & frustration thru plaintive lyrics & episodic instrumental tension. With elements reminiscent of the finest works by Echo & the Bunnymen, Dinosaur Jr., Bailter Space, & Galaxie 500, A Cricket in Times Square parallels other current acts like Interpol & Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - paying homage to the forerunners of its sound while verifying a unique identity as an important new band.
