Crosa Rosa are an alternative/garage trio inspired by 60's surf and psychedelic rock.

With the release of their debut E.P 'Pantophobia' CROSA ROSA saw success in 2015, particularly from the popularity of the single 'Little Leper'. Gaining the support from BBC DJ Dean Jackson, who featured the band on the BBC Introducing stages at Y Not Festival and Reading and Leeds Festival, they gained attention from established music reviewers such as Drowned in Sound, Kerrang! and Gigwise who described the band as "Quite possibly the best heavy three piece in the country" not to mention repeated airplay on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and Xfm.

After the progress curated in 2015, CROSA ROSA released the single 'Simper Smiler' in January 2016 which was met with a sold-out performance at Nottingham venue; The Bodega. BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens featured CROSA ROSA in the 'Best of BBC Introducing' list with the song "Cradlier" ('Simper Smiler' B-side) following the performance, CROSA ROSA were also picked to return to the Y Not Festival as part of the This Feeling line-up (sponsored by Jack Daniels).

Fred Perry Subculture featured the band in their 'New Noise 2016' article referring to them as "simultaneously blistering, loud and melodic. Enrapturing stuff." which gained them a slot on the Fred Perry Subculture stage at Dot to Dot Festival 2016 Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester. Crosa Rosa's latest release "Candy Eyes" was also featured in the "Top Subculture Releases" by Fred Perry Subculture and was described as "Incredible"

The lead single from the "Candy Eyes" EP "Like A Lady" was also featured in the Flying Vinyl monthly record package and was met with critical acclaim from independent reviewers, as well as popular media outlets such as BBC Introducing, Drowned in Sound & Fred Perry Subculture and will also feature as a Rough Trade Records Exclusive this records store day on a limited 7" vinyl pressing.

With a new single/video release set for May 2017 as well as performances at festivals such as FOCUS WALES, The Great Escape & a co-headline set with Maxïmo Park for Rough Trade record store day under their belt 2017 is set to be a busy year for the band.
