For fans of: early Coldplay, Maneli Jamal and Elliot Smith.

I'm having a very hard time pinning these guys down. Regardless of what I type, CRYWANK is a really interesting and talented band. I'm loving this record. It's very different from what I usually listen to, and sounds like stripped-down folk-pop soaked in melancholy. If I Hate Myself unplugged, went folky and sang with a British accent, you'd probably have something akin to CRYWANK. I should also mention the guitar picking is beautiful and reminds me of a more relaxed Maneli Jamal, Dakota Dakota and Ahleuchatistas.
