A poetic lining tinges every note and word of The Crookes’ music with a resonant feeling. Nostalgia, melancholy, and Romance are all adjectives that in one way or another have shaped the band’s persona to date. For George Waite (vocals/bass guitar), Daniel Hopewell (lyrics/guitar), Tom Dakin (guitar), and Adam Crofts (drums), a hard-working and determined ethos is just as familiar and pertinent.
Since their inception during their Sheffield college years, The Crookes dedicated themselves to working hard, writing hard and touring even harder. Addicted to the ‘old school’ way of doing things, the band have recorded three full length albums, an eight track EP, and countless stand alone 7” singles in their six year lifespan. They have travelled the globe, from the North of England via Europe, Tokyo and the U.S, finding their true soul reflected in the fellow outsiders and travellers they meet on their way.
