“Fusing elements of halcyon era Sub Pop (Superfuzz/Bleach, you get the drift) with psychedelic surges akin to early Spacemen 3 or more recently The Wytches…one of the most exciting releases out there at the minute.” – Drowned in Sound
“Best Bands to Play Reading and Leeds: Crosa Rosa excel ahead of their contemporaries.” – Gigwise
Nottingham, UK garage-psychedelic trio Crosa Rosa ended a breakthrough year of having been selected as one of the BBC Introducing… bands, which lead to prime slots on the Dot to Dot Festival, Y Not Festival and eventually prime positioning on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds. They also found support from influential tastemakers and radio DJs Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) and Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music) who played the band’s track Little Leper on their new music shows.

2015 also saw the band sign with New York management company Esther Creative Group (Twin Atlantic, The Gaslight Anthem, Spector, Augustines). Little Leper is the main track off the band’s debut EP Phantophobia, which has met with critical success and described as 60s garage-psych-grunge.
Crosa Rosa are Joe Weatherall (vocals), Joe Fisher (bass) and Kegan Clark (drums). They have supported many international bands who have toured through Nottingham (Clutch, Helsinki, A Place To Bury Strangers) and will be headlining their first hometown show on January 30 at The Bodega.
