Cape Crush - "San Souci"

Cape Crush is a band from the North Shore of Massachusetts formed when James Christopher asked Ali Lipman in 2021 about forming a band over their shared influences of The Get Up Kids and The Weakerthans. "San Souci" is a distinctly an emo song, and unashamedly so. This is the type of emo from the late 90's, when bands like The Promise ring and The Get Up Kids were starting to break and putting just a little pop sound into their songs. It's a really fun song that's going to hit nostalgia buttons for those of us around then while still sounding fresh. Cape Crush pays homage to their influences without just mimicking them.

You can watch the video for "San Souci" below. The San Souci EP is due out April 14 on Ancient Injury Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Cape Crush, check out the band on Instagram.
