Nottingham three-piece Cross Rosa were only conceived just over a year ago, yet already they've made their presence felt among the city's live music scene. Fusing elements of halcyon era Sub Pop (Superfuzz Bigmuff/Bleach, you get the drift) with psychedelic surges akin to early Spacemen 3 or more recently The Wytches, their new self produced EP Pantophobia is one of the most exciting releases out there at the minute. - Drowned in Sound
Whacky, fuzzed-up garage noise redolent of '70s strangeness, with the odd big hammer blow, they're definitely worth keeping an eye on - Kerrang!
