Get Olde: Crying

I’ll just cut to the chase and tell you that Get Olde from up-and-coming indie group Crying might just be the best 8-bit indie rock you’ll hear in months. Hailing from New York, Crying consists of Elaiza Santos (vocals), Ryan Galloway (guitar/game boy), and Nick Corbo (drums). In this seven-piece collection, the group introduces a fresh new way to appreciate chiptune. Their sound’s distinct, quirky attitude is infectiously addictive.
