††† (Crosses) 'Initiation / Protection' 10"
††† (Crosses) —the duo composed of Deftones' Chino Moreno and producer / multi-instrumentalist Shaun Lopez—return with two new original songs "Initiation" and "Protection". Embodying the group’s inimitable synthesis of organic and electronic sounds, the two-song set is their first new release of 2022 and is available on limited edition 10” single. With a foreboding atmosphere inspired by the infamous "The World Is Yours" scene from the classic film Scarface, “Initiation” is urgent; a soundtrack for uncertain times. "Protection," meanwhile, digs deeper into their influences and electronic textures with its masterful production.
Formed in 2011, the band released their self-titled debut album three years later. They recently returned to music and ended a hiatus with a surprise cover of Q Lazzarus’s cult classic “Goodbye Horses" and announced a new deal with Warner Records. As they gear up for even more music to come this year, “Initiation” and “Protection” are the first signs that ††† (Crosses) are officially back.
