“The Crack And The Light” is an album of true stories, as Jorrit Hermans explains. While these stories often explore dark and twisted themes, they are all united by a thread of hope—represented by the crack and the light. Each track is meticulously crafted, featuring beautiful guitar tones, astute drumming, and the signature jangly sound that defines CMON CMON’s style.
