Deftones’ singer Chico Moreno’s band Crosses (the name is actually three crosses in a row, but that key is broken on this laptop) isn’t the “witch house” band the Internet thought they were—and did that genre ever really exist anyway? Instead, Moreno and bandmates Shaun Lopez and Chuck Doom make densely atmospheric slow-mo pop songs that sound like a John Carpenter or David Lynch soundtrack somehow co-opted by Factory Records, and possibly produced by Pink Floyd, depending on what song we’re in the middle of. After much teasing with EPs, Crosses released their debut album just a few weeks ago, and it’s a calculated and deliberate listen—the kind of thing that creeps in all around you like fog, and settles in for a long dark night.
