Sweet Crude

Louisiana bilingual pop project Sweet Crude is a young seven-piece band composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana’s native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of four-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks. “We’re making the quirky, energetic compositions that we’d otherwise come up with given our indie rock influences. We’ve got five people playing drums, we’ve got everybody singing, shouting, and dancing. We’re just singing a lot of the time in Louisiana French.
