Crumbs has released their new double single titled ‘You’re Just Jealous/DIY SOS’ from their upcoming album dropping May 10th via Skep Wax Records.

Post-punk power rock with a slick conscious and fist pumped rhythms, Crumbs resurrects the music that was and makes it what could be with the infusion of legends and originality that makes the pub smokey again and the bathrooms non usable.

Both singles have that nostalgic feeling yet feel fresh and new amidst all those tracks you get inundated with in your Spotify suggestion boxes.

About ‘You’re Just Jealous/DIY SOS’

Please enjoy these two fantastic songs from the upcoming CRUMBS album…

You’re Just Jealous is a plea for understanding – and an invitation to dance. DIY SOS is an urgent demand that you sort yourself out – and that you should dance!

Post-punk energy, pop sensitivity, driving beats, bass lines you could eat, guitar you could sleep with, vocal melodies to die for… the album has a lot in store.

Crumbs have been incubating You’re Just Jealous for a few years now. We don’t know how they kept all the energy in check. It must have been like sitting on a volcano. The songs burst out with pure pop fire, sending splinters of guitar, sharp lyrics and snatches of the catchiest backing vocals.

The rhythm section (Jamie and Gem): it’s like Delta 5 meeting Le Tigre in a dark alley in Leeds, fusing blindly and completely, and then forcing its way into the back entrance of a venue, sending volts through the limbs of the unwitting punters, forcing them to dance. This is TIGHT.

And as the lights come on and the indie kids throw themselves around, Ruth’s vocals sweetly assault their ears with anger, joy, political intelligence – and all around, Stuart’s guitar, sometimes twangly-melodic like the B52s, sometimes sweet and ringing like a memory of Scars, sometimes furious and feeding back, keeps you alert and thirsty for more.

These songs do NOT outstay their welcome. Starts and ends are cut hard: no pre-echo, no wistful, drawn-out regretful fade-outs. Crumbs have imbibed the key lessons taught by The Gang Of Four and The Au Pairs: never let the energy dissipate. But there is more than anger here. The band have smuggled a pop sweetness into the disciplined shapes of their angular songs. You’re Just Jealous has sharp edges, but it’s generous too.

Rob (Skep Wax Records) says ‘this is the first album we’ve been sent on spec that we had to say ‘yes’ to immediately. We think Crumbs have made something really remarkable.’

The album will be available as a vinyl LP, CD, download and on streaming services.
