Cricketbows is a midwestern, psychedelic tinged rock band that has roots in punk, blues, hard r&b, gospel, psych and prog rock with male and female lead vocals, flute, remarkably clean guitar lines and a slippery but very impactful rhythm section. Described often with terms like “lush”, “epic” and “spiritual” and compared to artists as wide ranging as The Flaming Lips, X, Jane’s Addiction, Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, The Butthole Surfers, Nirvana, Jefferson Airplane, Roky Erickson, Hawkwind and Gong, Cricketbows is a hard band to categorize without hanging the term “Psychedelic” or “Experimental” on the front of whatever musical genre tags one might use to describe the project.
