M. Crane is an alternative indie rock band from Tucson, Arizona. They are made up of five members, Nick Maskill, Kyle Rosas, Andrew Lobo, Gaby Lisk, andJosiah Rodriguez.They have used their emotive vocals and dreamy soundscapes to establish themselves as a unique voice in their southwest desert home. M. Crane officially formed in 2015 and the release of their first EP drew comparisons to acts such as Muse and Mars Volta. Tucson Weekly stated that their music encapsulates a “moody, broody ambience decorated with cold and faraway feeling textures”. In their own words, the band says, “This music is honest about pain and beauty. It’s for lovers, thinkers, poets, stoners, mothers, zealots, our idols, and not for them too.”
M. Crane released their first two EPS in 2016 and have toured the Southwest United States extensively, steadily growing their fan base. They are preparing for the release their first full album, “King She” in early 2019. In August, M. Crane released the Matt Cole directed video for their song “Cate In A Violent World”, and the single “I’m Only Here” in September. M. Crane has now put out the video for their latest track, “Live To See It”.
“Live To See It” begins with dreamy instrumentals before settling into the moody guitar led rhythm. The haunting vocals are steaming with emotion in their light and passionate delivery. The song is backed up by complex music with a non-stop beat that showcases the bands ability to dramatically shift tones. The explosive chorus leads into a dancey, almost trans-fusion section that moves with layers of guitars intertwined with a shuffling steady drumbeat. The poetic lyrics bring you into a world of intensity and bounce you back and forth between a calm angelic feeling and a chaotic eruption. The dramatic colors and visuals in the Matt Cole directed video matches the tone of the song perfectly and shifts with every musical mood.
