Cobalt Cranes

Cobalt Cranes are the sound of yesterday today. The Los Angeles-based quartet creates new millennium indie-pop rock from last century’s lo-fi garages. It’s an alluring blend of shoe-gaze detachment and in-your-face fuzz joined together to find the way to the memorable hook. The group is largely successful in its loosely psychedelic endeavor. Its new Lollipop Records release, “Days in the Sun,” is a glowing orb of rock full of verse and chorus releases, affected guitar dynamics and sun-baked pursuits of peace, love and understanding. Within its sunshine daydreams lurks a heart of darkness that keeps the group’s proclivity for esoteric whimsy in check. The Cobalt Cranes give flight to their garage rock take on the almighty hook on Friday, March 6, at Strange Matter. Richmond kindred spirits the Diamond Center and Manzara open. Doors are at 9 p.m. Admission is $8. strangematterrva.com.
