Majesty Crush are a band that’s over 30 years old, that captured the now-calcified preconceptions of the ’90’s nostalgia alongside the ear-perking noisy hooks. Through this, it becomes more and more easy to grasp as to why and how Majesty Crush continued their existence after all this time. They weren’t a band that never caught a break, nor a bunch of introverts with stage-fright.

They were popular in their own right, from local commercial alt-radio play to opening big shows for national bands right out of the gate. They were signed to a subsidiary of a major label, not long after starting out as one of the many dreamy-eyed groups of the era that was putting out seve-inchess with smudged artmand handmade covers. During a close listening, there’s a multitude of shades of rawness that emerge within the lyrics, sound and the overall ever-simmering energy with reason as to why the world wasn’t ready for this music back in the ’90s. Their goal was to create a form of dream pop that was different than what previously existed. Majesty Crush went for an individualized blur of personalities, experiences, and perspectives informed by the independent music from the unregulated corners of Motor City.
