CROWD COMPANY: Stories“Take a pen, think again/ Tell a story with a different end,” sings Esther Dee on new Crowd Company single, Stories, the third to be taken from their forthcoming Alan Evans-produced LP. Now there’s a positive sentiment given the multitude of stories over the last month that were mostly bleak as fuck. I suspect Dee was probably thinking in terms of romantic relationships having a different outcome rather than hedge-fund managers, tax- exile media owners, racist populists and over-privileged Eton posh-boys finally getting their comeuppance however, but there we go. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a lift from an uptempo funky number underpinned by murky wah-wah, rich horns and a stomping great chorus.
