Cruel World

Cruel World have existed for little over a year. Sometimes they pretend they’re the Wreckin’ Crew, sometimes they pretend they’re Crazy Horse.  Either way, genuine sincerity is always buried somewhere in the mix. Song is king. Since forming they’ve supported Lucy Dacus, Sasami, Hiss Golden Messenger, Blitzen Trapper, Horse Feathers and jammed live on stage with the legendary Karl Blau. Their first track ‘Boxer’ was played on 6music by Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson with repeated support from BBC introducing. They play a new type of music called Fraggle Rock, it’s a familiar sound but you can’t buy it in the shops yet. FFO: Kurt Vile, Wilco, Yo La Tengo
