Communiqué "A Crescent Honeymoon"
Communiqué are a band from Oakland that spent 2002 developing their sound after the end of their other musical projects. All the band members have served time in the band, American Steel. "A Crescent Honeymoon" is the brilliant debut of a fully realized band. This EP is six clever, intricate songs reminiscent of the soaring melodies of the 80's with nods to The Smiths, The Fixx and Roxy Music. Communiqué are also more than that. They're a unit made up of five personalities with one maverick music idea, exemplifying the independent ethos by stripping away pretense from their music and performances. Their voices and musicianship deliver the honest song itself unencumbered by the hollow clichés many bands hide their songs behind. Lyrically they tackle emotional and political ideas with intelligence and eloquence.
