Daily electricity to load your batteries

23 November 2022

Band: CROSS WIRES
Who: fervid post-punk 4-piece
from Romford, UK.

Single: MOURNING
The first piece of the band’s
upcoming second longplayer.

TUTV: Great news for all Cross Wires fans, including myself, out there.
Their 2nd album is finished/recorded and ready to leave its vault early
next year through Culture Wars Records. It follows the band’s album
A Life Extinct
. One of the most poignant debut records of 2019.

But first the lead single. Mourning is not a happy story. It’s a post-break-up cry out,
a cathartic shout out. Sixties psychedelic-sounding wah-wah guitar fuzz, alternated
with cutting six-string fervor stoke up the energy of this crackerjack all the way, along
with a steadfast drum/bass tandem, and back up frontman Jonathan Chapman‘s
harrowing confession of lovesickness. Familiar emotions for many of us, nevertheless
always heartbreaking.

It seems like forever since you moved out of this place and
left me alone the flat we shared for 2 months, 3 weeks and
six days. I still love you, I hate to admit it to myself. I’ve only
just been able to say that out loud.

The last cup you drank from I never washed up. Is that pathetic?
There’s a book on the coffee table that you never finished.

It was almost 6 weeks before I could even venture outside.
I forgot to eat and the days they seemed to run in to each other.
You see I’ve been having trouble sleeping. I spent yesterday in mourning.

The last cup you drank from I never washed up. Is that pathetic?
There’s a book on the coffee table that you never finished.”
