FRESH: ‘Crystal Clear’ – Druzy

Druzy release “Crystal Clear”.

by Christopher Smith

Druzy have released their newest single “Crystal Clear”, a high-energy pop song that is chock-full of creative, artistic ideas that help separate itself from most in the pop genre. Filled with vintage drum machines, synthesizers, and pianos used in a modern way, the soundscape with its unique swing style makes it feel quite fresh in today’s music landscape. The song is about pursuing your passions while facing adversity and having clear, determined intentions.

Druzy are a duo that’s more than their neo-80s pop sound and eccentric but cool image. The two have found that creating music and art is a profound way for them to express themselves on life, relationships, and the universe. Bri Conroy and Luc Alexiades met at Berklee College of Music and quickly developed a strong partnership that turned romantic. Coincidentally being from the same hometown, they decided to go all in on Druzy, left school early and moved back to Los Angeles.

The couple began crafting their electronic, dancy sound and released two EP’s and three singles including “How You Feel”, which landed on a sizable amount of music blogs, major Spotify playlists, and racked up over 120,000 streams. This landed them shows all over Southern California (SpaceTwenty, Ace Hotel), helped Druzy make it into Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist multiple times and placed two songs in MTV’s Teen Mom 2.

The duo took two years off of releasing content to focus on their mental health, but kept working on music the whole time, refining their sound, taking inspiration from groovy pop songs from the 80’s. With vintage drum machines and synthesizers combined with a focus on catchy and emotionally clever vocals, the two are back with confidence and a trove of songs to match it. Bri and Luc are finishing off 2019 with their first big release back, “Crystal Clear”. Druzy aim for a determined effort back in the music game with four more singles to quickly follow.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
