21/12/13 – Ballet School – Crush – 2013


Crush comes from Berlin based three piece Ballet School’s Boys Again EP. Only together about a year, Rosie the singer met Michel the guitarist when she heard him playing in the U-Bahn.

The song sounds like a cross between The Sundays and Shelleyan Oprhan, two quite forgotten indie bands that crossed over from the eighties into the nineties and then disbanded – The Smiths also feature in some of the guitar playing especially on this song. Although they cite the Cocteau Twins and The Cure  as an influence they are not as atmospheric, having more pop in their sound.

They are signed to Bella Union and are yet to release an album.
