American rock quartet Another Crush share latest single ‘Hope You’re Happy’ as their love for 90s rock shines through.
Based in Hamilton, Ontario Heather Valley (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Taylor Robertson (lead guitar), Dave Habza (bass) created the band, sharing a passion for alternative rock and fortunately discovered an incredible chemistry and realised they had developed a fresh sound.
Their sound is nostalgic with a fresh twist, marked by velvet vocals, catchy melodies and soaring solos. Their lyrics relay the difficulty in living with yourself, living with others, and in carrying on without them.
Transmuting their pain through song, they created Another Crush, a band about the things in life that you crush on and that crush you.
Dave had an MBA and Taylor had been accepted to business school. Dave had the idea of creating a revival 90s alternative rock band, but a series of parallel tragedies made it something much deeper.
Heather had a breakdown after her con man ex was arrested in front of her at the US border, and Taylor’s immediate family passed away in a tragic plane crash. They lost everything. Heather was a practising lawyer.
Their new single ‘Hope You’re Happy’ is an arresting alt-rock track with a nostalgic sound and a fresh twist. Listen below and give the band a rating out of 10.
