Description:

Their new EP 'I Watched It From the Roadside' features six tracks, each as well thought-out as the next, the sophisticated build-ups laced with relentless hooks, and lyrics by the two singers that shout bloody murder. Opener 'Slow News Day' builds though restrained melodic guitars and vocals before exploding into the band's more familiar sonic assault. The record continues to build through the dynamic and rhythmic twists and turns of hard-hitting 'They Don't Mean Anything' and schizophrenic 'Out In the Dark'. The exceptional rhythm section battles with lung splitting dual vocals on 'Like Mice In the
Cellar', a track that has already brought the band into the public eye by being included on cult label Big Scary Monsters' 10 Collection compilation. The reflective and moody 'That Drum's Discordant Sound' is followed by 'Time and Place' an atmospheric, feedback strewn EP closer.

It’s always good to hear a band take a potentially stale genre of post-hardcore, and make it sound new and exciting again; recommended Right Where You Are Sitting Now
At the heart of their music is a raw-yet-fuzzy post-hardcore sound, but Crooked Mountain, Crooked Sea take the staple of the genre and inject a new dimension into it. Not afraid to reign it back a little and explore a more delicate side to their sound, the band bring an ambitious edge to their compositions One Beat
Jaunty, choppy post-rock that probably takes influence from the early Deep Elm bands, possibly some Dischord stuff and maybe even Joy Division... The ideas are executed well and the vocals are tremendous throughout. Ones to watch, for sure. Punktastic.com
...a raw, atonal blast of alt-rock that's more refreshing than a stroll along Brighton pier in the middle of a British winter... astonishingly mature, Crooked Mountain, Crooked Sea are a band to follow. The Devil Has the Best Tuna Blog
