The Strokes’ guitar player Nick Valensi was the last guy in the group to branch out into a side project called CRX. His group is named after the car that all the “cool kids” in my high school had.
Their style is something I think any Strokes fan could fall into. Jangly, upbeat, bratty, rock & roll.
The first single is called “Ways To Fake It.”
Their debut album, New Skin, was produced by Josh Homme. In their Rolling Stone review RS said, “Producer Josh Homme gives the album a humid garage-glam swagger especially when the tempos get dialed back.”
