|CRUZH - Hard To Get (2013) |
At the beginning of 2013, new Swedish Melodic Rock band CRUZH was presented to the music press. The only thing shown was an image with the
silhouette of the three band members and the first single "In A Blink
Of An Eye".
The track quickly spread on the internet and both Scandinavian and
International websites (it was featured here) and radio stations played
it and speculated around the identities of the band members.
Now the veil has fallen and Cruzh is presenting their debut EP "Hard To Get", limited to 100 CD copies.
Cruzh is Tony Andersson on keyboards and lead vocals (also active in
Dawn Of Oblivion), Anton Joensson on guitar & background vocals
(also active in Eye and previously in TrashQueen) and Dennis Butabi Borg
handling bass and background vocals (formerly in TrashQueen).
"We chose to keep ourselves hidden during the launch" - says Andersson "mainly because we wanted the audience to focus on the music instead of us, but
of course also to create a hype and interest in the band. Now, however,
we have reached a point where we have chosen to show us to take it all
to the next level and reach out to a larger mass."
Although Anton and Butabi come from metal oriented acts, the guys shared
love for '80s classic Scandi Melodic Rock / AOR sounds and joined
forces with Tony Andersson last year to shape Cruzh. All three operate
as songwriters and among the influences in their music are Def Leppard,
Toto, FM, Winger, Firehouse and Bryan Adams.
You can hear those influences in the uptempo melodic rocker "Hard To
Get" (check video), the AORish "Stay" and the ballad "In A Blink Of An
Eye", but to me Cruzh has a typical European sound akin Bad Habit, Terra
Nova, Grand Illusion, etc.
While preparing Cruzh's full length album, the guys decided to release
this EP as presentation, a CD that indeed will be "Hard To Get" in the
future as it's limited to 100 physical copies.
A promising advance from another interesting Swedish Melodic Rock / AOR band.
