March 24 — Hard rock band Slow Crush debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the video for its single, ‘Blue’ Thursday.’ The song is featured in the band’s latest album, Hush. The video features live footage of the band as the song plays over the visualization.
The song’s musical arrangement has been marketed as shoegaze. The reality though, is that the slow, grinding, down-tuned approach to the song gives it more of a goth style sound and approach a la Type O Negative. That is especially the case when the keyboard line is factored into the mix.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the video’s premiere. The lyrics provided with the video hint at the song centering on the all too familiar topic of a relationship.
In other news, Slow Crush has announced a new live schedule in support of Hush. The tour is scheduled to launch April 8 in Brooklyn, NY and to run through May 24 in Philadelphia, PA. It features performances in cities nationwide, such as Atlanta, Ga; Dallas, TX and Chapel Hill, NC.
