Steel Cranes

Described by MTV as possessing “the slo-mo heaviness of a 2,000-pound pendulum,” Steel Cranes is offering up an evolution of that sound on the upcoming album Tango.

Tango is a more dynamic take on the “grit” and “raw, relentless power” that MAGNET and Bitch respectively called out in their 2013 coverage of Ouroboros, the debut Steel Cranes album. With a vision for the sound of Tango that was more expansive, Tracy Shapiro and Amanda Schukle were initially stalled when considering the logistics of accomplishing these time-consuming sonic refinements in a studio environment. It soon became clear that the best option was to record and mix the record themselves.

Amanda has been recording her own music for years, and she began obsessively learning more about recording and mixing,” Shapiro remembers.  “As soon as we decided to do everything ourselves, the control freaks in us were unleashed!”

This education ultimately yielded the more passionate and layered version of the Steel Cranes sound that is heard on Tango.  Premiering today from the album is “Today Is the Day,” which can be heard below. Tango will be released August 5, 2016.
