Home organic, re-genred covers of songs by famous artists that were never very popular in the first place. A bit surfy, a bit Lynchy, a bit CRANDLE.
Matt Halliday (formerly bassist of Borderville and Huck and the Handsome Fee) and Sarah Halliday (also singer and keys in Gut Waxy) formed CRANDLE in 2015, after challenging each other to play instruments they hadn’t used before. As a result, their sound is hard to place, even by the band who lovingly refer to it as ‘shonkytonk’.
“CRANDLE. Like being in a film joint directed by John Hughes and David. Lynch: comforting, glamorous and deeply unsettling at the same time.” - Moogieman
