Crux - 'Radgie Gadgie'

  • 1 min read

A fast-growing alternative rock band from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Crux have been described as "a weird mixture of Arctic Monkeys and Pink Floyd but with big political bollocks."

Armed with a defiant sound that mixes prog-rock with punk to create a unique sound which keeps the listener on their toes, Crux explore real life global and local issues through their music. Press have also noted the virtuosic talent of the band members with Ear to the Ground Music commenting, "Crux are an act that any listener can get behind. Not only do they have enviable talent and riffs for days, but the guys are genuinely conscious human beings."

With an established sound, the band have now shared their latest triumphant single, 'Radgie Gadgie', a raucous new release that blends thei fast-paced anthemics with bold self-aware sensibilities.

Speaking about the new cut, the band explained, "'Radgie Gadgie' is Geordie slang for 'Aggressive Man'. Technically, this is our most complex and fast paced song to date. 'Radgie Gadgie' is a grim tale of toxic masculinity and trauma; the instrumentals creating a sonic pantomime with inspiration from Edvard Grieg's In The Hall of the Mountain King."

Crux have established themselves in the local music scene in Newcastle headlining the Engine Room, The Globe, Little Buildings, and O2 Academy2 Newcastle, playing in local festivals such as Scoop Festival, Afterlight Music Festival, and the Canny Fringe Festival, and have played gigs with upcoming artists such as India Arkin, Keiran Bowe, and Lizzie Esau.
