Beginning as a late night musical outlet during the last year of college in Philadelphia for John Helmuth in 2010, Crozet was formed with the much needed help from long-time friend and musician Sean Lee.
Creating an epic wall of sound, built out of huge drums, creamy layered synths, reverb-drenched vocals and rich guitar tones, Crozet’s musical direction blends emotional John Hughes style film scores with an influential synth-rock background. 2022 brings new material from the band titled Suburbia. Lyrics speaking of love and loss, music evoking the innocence of childhood and teenage angst with a timeless blend of vintage and modern production.
It’s been four years since Crozet released Running Time and they’ve made the wait worth all the while. Suburbia starts with the sounds of crickets, a car, and a notable sigh before launching into the synth-driven “Summer Nights.” Crozet should be scoring every coming of age film from here on out. Their attention to detail and all of the texture in their songs is unmatched. Suburbia could be the soundtrack for all of the summer nights that are on the way.
