With a unique spin on dreamy indie pop that's both jazzy and psychedelic, Crumb is a four-piece led by main songwriter Lila Ramani, with Brian Aronow on synths/keyboards, Jesse Brotter on bass, and Jonathan Gilad on drums. While still based in Massachusetts, they recorded the three-track eponymous Crumb EP with producer John Scott, releasing it in 2016. The Locket EP followed in 2017. After some headlining dates, they joined (Sandy) Alex G and Hovvdy on a tour of the U.S. later that same year.
Crumb then relocated to Ramani's native Brooklyn and co-produced their debut album with Gabe Wax, bringing in Scott for additional production and mixing. The resulting Jinx arrived via Crumb Records in 2019.
In 2021, the band released their sophomore effort Ice Melt via Crumb Records, supported by the lead single "Trophy" as well as the double single "BNR / Balloon".
