It’s really quite spectacular how awful my brain is at making connections. I love science and making connections is an integral part of that but the amount of time I spend trying to understand how unbelievably dim I can be would suggest otherwise. I had spent all of last summer obsessed with one song and that was “Kidnap Me” by CRUISR. I had first heard it as background music to one of Top with Cinnamon’s videos and soon enough the song was on repeat and lyrics were memorized. Fast forward to present day and “All Over” is constantly playing around me and yet it took a visit to CRUISR’s SoundCloud page to finally realize it was the same band who created both of these songs that I’d spent hours listening to! I don’t know, man. I couldn’t tell you how I let that one slip past me. I’m hypothesizing right now that my recall ability is quickly diminishing with age (note: I’m 20).
While I still can’t believe I didn’t make that connection, I’m certain that CRUISR’s summery indie-pop songs are going to get me through these northeastern snow storms. “All Over” has the amazing ability to put me into such a positive mindset and want to start jumping when the chorus hits. So I’m gonna do just that. *Closes laptop, quick facepalm, jams out to CRUISR*
Last thing: dear CRUISR, please play another NYC show because I missed out on your Webster Hall show and Verboten is in the middle of bumblefuck, Brooklyn.
CRUISR is Andy States, Jonathan Van Dine, Kyle Cook, Bruno Catrambone.
