From an outsider looking in, this concisely paints a picture of Crooked Spies. It is not an unfamiliar site to witness cascading riff driven guitars played from the flat of their backs and soaring vocal harmonies, echoed through the room, compliments of the band's frontmen and brothers Dylan & Steven Evanik. Heavily influenced by the garage rock revival and classic rock, the group has been compared to such acts as The Black Keys, The Raconteurs, RATM and Danzig. BeatRoute describes the Calgary, AB based four piece as “Powered by the classic elements of rock n’ roll, combining them with heavy, melodic beats, and dark, brooding vocals; the bluesy backbone throughout their music keeps Crooked Spies’ sound complimentary regardless of the eclectic twists their style takes.”
The message is a simple one from Crooked Spies. Make music that is true to itself and have as much fun as possible doing it.
Stay in touch and be sure to catch them live in a town near you.
