show preview: CRX at Brighton Music Hall on Sunday, November 20, 2016


Fronted by The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, CRX melds impressive guitar riffs and power pop elements for high energy songs. Valensi’s vocals sound clear, self-assured and relaxed. On creating CRX, Valensi explained: “The Strokes don’t play that often anymore, and when we do it’s awesome, but it got to the point where I needed to balance that out with a project I could take on tour whenever I wanted to. And the idea of playing clubs again was really exciting to me.”

CRX is: Nick Valensi [guitar and vocals]; bassist Jon Safley; keyboardist/vocalist Richie Follin; drummer Ralph Alexander and guitarist Darian Zahedi.

The band’s debut album New Skin [Columbia Records] – produced by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme – is out now.
