The first single off Long Island band Crow Bait’s upcoming debut album, Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate, balanced hangdog sentiments and guitar heroics in a way that was muscular and vulnerable. Their newest, “The Ocean,” starts a little gentler, but pretty quickly hits an even bigger and more yearning groove. It’s a good way way to sum up what they do so well, and fits just right as the album’s opening track. Listen below.
Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate is out 5/20 via Don Giovanni.
