Taking lockdown as their cue to gather their collective talents, West Midlands-based Four Crooks took to a remote farmhouse to write and record their new EP, and are now unleashing the results to the world.
Four Crooks consist of vocalist and guitarist Dave Morris, Guitarist Eamonn Russell, Bassist Toby Barnet and Drummer Dan Quinton-Jones. Having actually met over a bar altercation, Eamon and Dave shared a common Bond in music and how it should be performed.
They formed a band with Toby and Dan and took advantage of the lockdown to record a new, hard-hitting EP.
Black Magic by Four Crooks is led by the title track, a meditation on the addictive qualities of women and substances of all kinds – both a warning and a celebration of everything that can get you high and take hold of your senses.
The Black Magic EP also features Feel Alright, a song of redemption which sees someone working their way through a difficult relationship and walking out with their head held high.
Paranoia, a thudding, far heavier track looks at how it really feels to be trapped mentally with feelings of anxiety and doubt.
All in all, Black Magic is a trio of tracks that are honest about mental health and relationship battles.
