A warming breeze in newly-green treetops, it piques memories while it calms. “Too Kind To Be Cruel” is the gently-fluttering, literate and lovable brand-new single from Portland, Oregon’s The Crystal Furs. The band’s Kara Buchanan describes the track as
“having a bigger, layered sound than anything we’ve done before — wider stereo fields, instruments like electric piano and vibraphone and sleigh bells, multi-tracked vocals, just really trying to take our songwriting up to a new level. It takes inspiration from twee pop, Pacific Northwest indie rock and The Beach Boys.”
