In a compelling corner of music where prog rock meets grunge and punk, Crux’s last single Dreamseller was born. Heavy drums and loud guitar embellish the rage-filled message that flows between the chords. Repeated throughout, “I want it my way or the highway”, has been perfectly twisted to convey Crux’s viewpoint on an issue that aligns with punk politics.

Overall, the track criticises the ‘profit over creativity’ mindset that has been adopted by the music industry and how music loses its emotional purity and integrity when strained through the shredder of societal view. Similar in sound to Muse and the Arctic Monkeys, Dreamseller is an angst-filled, rock beat that the world has definitely been waiting for.
