The Crookes - Godless Girl

by Emily Bielby Rating:9 Release Date:2011-03-14

Literate guitar-pop is no stranger to Britain, taking in the likes of The Smiths and Orange Juice, as well as a host of lesser-known names; but The Crookes are its latest contender. The Yorkshire born-and-bred band is the latest edition to emerge from Steel City and with their first single 'Godless Girl' from their much awaited LP-Chasing After Ghosts, sounding as catchy as it does, they could well be Sheffield's answer to Frankie & the Heartstrings. 'Godless Girl' is full of soulful passions, mixed up with echoey, 80s styled vocals and inspired by a picture in a 1970s American paper, is evidently original. The Crookes have created a sound that captures a sense of classic 50s rock 'n' roll, with an energetic twist of catchy indie-pop narrative; and we can't get enough of it. While the old-fashioned lads crack on with their melodic and literate inspired agenda, 'Godless Girl' can only be a sign of things to come. Good things, at that.
