EP PREMIERE: ‘Funeral Designs’ by Crowning
We are beyond excited to stream 'Funeral Designs', the forthcoming debut EP of Illinois’ screamo newcomers Crowning, right here, on Form und Leere, as our cooperation with Zegema Beach Records enters the next round.
Based in Chicago, Crowning (ex-Pregnancy Pact) consists of Justin, Dave, Vanessa and Myles and for their debut they recorded an imperious collection of five well-crafted post-hardcore songs with a huge impact of Loma Prieta-esque screamo. Overflown with energy, 'Funeral Designs' feels like a blistering attack, as Crowning’s passionate craftsmanship runs through each of the tracks. Vocalist, Justin, screams at the top of his lungs, while the precise interaction between distorted guitars, rumbling baselines and whipping drums shape a crushing heaviness but also provide space for some atmospheric parts. Coming up with an excellent production, the Extended Play is available on orange cassettes, which glow fluorescent under a black light, and will be released on February 14. Make sure to pre-order your version through Zegema Beach Records right now.
