Cape Crush is a Power-Pop/Emo band hailing from the North Shore of Massachusetts. The band consists of scene-veterans Ali Lipman on guitar and vocals, James Christopher on guitar, Jake Letizia on bass, and Cody Rico on drums. They will be releasing their debut EP San Souci on April 14, 2023 via Ancient Injury Records.
Ahead of that, the title track is now streaming, along with a lyric video. The song “San Souci” deals with the “bittersweet emotions of leaving behind people and places you’ve begrudgingly learned to love.”
Cape Crush was formed when James Christopher approached Ali Lipman in the winter of 2021 about putting a band together. With shared influences like The Get Up Kids, and the Weakerthans, they started writing and arranging songs that explored themes of “heartbreak, hardship, and change.” They were soon after joined by friends Jake Letizia on bass, and Cody Rico on drums, both of whose love of Emo music influenced the overall sound of Cape Crush.
In 2022, Cape Crush entered the studio to record their debut EP, San Souci, at God City Music in Salem, MA. Another single from the EP (“Sandwich Wars”) will be available on streaming platforms in the coming weeks.
