Sometimes an artist will take their time releasing music and leave fans wondering what comes next and when. As is the case with Philadelphia indie outfit Crozet. In 2018, the band released their sophomore album Running Time and there was a 5+ year gap between that and their debut We’ll Be Gone By Then. What Crozet proves time and time again is that their patience between releases works heavily in their favor because they deliver fantastic albums. On July 1st, Crozet will release their newest album, Suburbia, which is a breezy indie-pop album that is rich with synthesizers. Crozet has a knack for writing songs that sound like they were pulled from John Hughes films and their lead single “Summer Nights” is your first peek at what’s to come. “Summer Nights” is available on all digital platforms now, so go ahead and hit play and count down the days until summer is here. 


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.
