A normal day in the CRIM3S life could be summarised in community service, job centre waiting rooms, shoplifting and breaking speakers. In 2010, Rou Rot and Sadie Pinn met in a north London warehouse called the Monkey Farm, where they both lived at the time. Composing sound on a broken laptop, Rou was searching for a vocalist, someone as raw, extreme and honest as himself.
After being evicted on short notice, they were left homeless for a period of a year, during that time they came up with the act Crim3s. Just as themselves, the first EP was made on the streets of London; each track in a different environment: garages, warehouses, squats, railway arches, office blocks, garden sheds and a law student’s university office. The knowledge of the duo spread as they participated in and organised illegal squat raves in London. This is still their natural environment and they haven’t stayed anywhere that’s not illegal for 7 years. CRIM3S are still not signed.
Besides the economical and fashionable exclusiveness that comes with clubs, raves opens for a different way of experiencing sound. It was from the resonating void of squatted warehouses that Rou Rot’s first sonic excavations was brought forth as an attempt to fuse the squat scene and the internet world together. CRIM3S is a depiction of Rou Rot’s and Sadie Pinn’s lives, where making music has been the antidote to their lived experiences.
For the Sound of Stockholm residence at Under Bron, Crim3s present a new live set, the first completely live show they will have performed in 3 years, having turned down countless world tours. This will be their comeback show and a completely fresh experience.
