Shane Crump is best known for his role as the bassist for pop-metal icons Alesana, but did you know he has a, dare we say, softer-side? His new project, The Ivory, is a piano-based dose of infectiously warming pop music. The new video “I’m A Mess” (ft. Sierra Kay) premiered exclusively with Crave Online and is the first taste of the debut EPGloom. The record will be released independently on 6/30.
“This video portrays a loving relationship falling into a toxic one, ” says Crump. “One partner is more consumed by drugs and alcohol than the love that holds their relationship together, and eventually pushes the other further and further away. I feel like a good majority of people have been through a similar scenario in some fashion or form.”
