‘There Was a Door,’ but Crying Smash Through the Wall Anyway
It's one of the most recognizable action clichés: One minute there's a wall, the next minute there's not. Everyone from the Kool-Aid Man to James Bond is guilty of dipping into the trope; as a matter of fact, it's become so ubiquitous that culture vultures have coined a term for it: "There Was a Door." There's your trivia for the day.
With this tidbit in mind, the title of Crying's latest single — off their upcoming The Fleeting Gales LP, due out this Friday — makes perfect sense. After all, the band's sound is more or less the sonic equivalent of the Kool-Aid Man busting through bricks, simultaneously cheery and crushing. Importantly, however, for all its hyperspeed hooks, "There Was a Door" is all about fun, pure and simple, just like the previously shared, similarly sugary "Wool in the Wash." Listen to it below.
