Artist to Watch: Crystal Antlers
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
The past year has seen an onslaught of “Crystal” bands, but it’s easy to remember that Crystal Antlers are the one band in the bunch that rocks. Crafting a unique brand of organ-drenched punk, Crystal Antlers are further anchored by the raw bellows of frontman Jonny Bell. The quintet formed in 2006 and dropped a few 7” singles and an EP before hooking up with Touch & Go, who will be releasing the band’s forthcoming full-length.
