In «I Want You To Know», CRIMER for the first time lifts the veil from his vulnerable side. From
the struggle with his very own artistry springs a hopeful ballad which is also so torn that one can’t
help wonder if this might be the last we heard from CRIMER.
There’s a lot of uncovering in «I Want You To Know». The singing, battered as though it sounds,
radiates with strength, perfectly embedded with the sturdy, humming synthesizers. Somber beats start picking up half-way through, pushing CRIMER’s lion-hearted falsetto into the light at the finale.
CRIMER did the most crucial work on «I Want You To Know» in a London home studio. The set-up is
this tiny living room in this typical brick building, about as far away from this city’s luxury and pomp
as the moon is from the sun. All that’s left to fill are the cracks, and to get in now, things need to be
granular. The stacks of dusty synths lift the ceiling just enough for this touching song to unfold. It is the
first sign of CRIMER’s new full length Album «FAKE NAILS» which is to be released this autumn (2021).
