STA is now Ten Years Old

Crooked Mountain, Crooked Sea

Complex rhythms and intelligent lyrics sung with agitated, shouted vocals lead to far flung comparisons ranging from CURSIVE for their similarly narrative songs, to the restrained rage of FUGAZI and AT THE DRIVE-IN, and in quieter moments the introspection and melody of RED HOUSE PAINTERS.

Hailing from Brighton, post-rock / post hardcore four piece Crooked Mountain, Crooked Sea have covered a lot of ground since they began playing shows last year. Their sound is ever-evolving, taking a staid genre and making it poignant, relevant and interesting again. Complex rhythms and intelligent lyrics sung with agitated, shouted vocals lead to far flung comparisons ranging from CURSIVE for their similarly narrative songs, to the restrained rage of FUGAZI and AT THE DRIVE-IN, and in quieter moments the introspection and melody of RED HOUSE PAINTERS. They've embarked on several UK tours already this year, joining Hold Your Horse Is on a ten-date trip, as well as a mini-tour with acoustic act Shoes and Socks Off aka ex-Meet Me In St Louis frontman Tobias Hayes. Already a favourite of BBC6 Music's Tom Robinson, they have appeared on the show for an interview and gained extensive airplay on the Introducing strand.
