Artists To Watch – Kruel Summer

Kruel Summer

Kruel Summer is a rising alternative reggae-rock band from San Jose, California.

Comprised of Clev Stiles (Former DJ and manager of The Holdup), Ben Dimmit, Shane Billings, and Chris Reed. Since 2019, the band has brought in the summer vibes with their unique style.

This past May, their latest single, “Just Too Broken,” was released. The lyrics are honest in describing the comfort zone that feelings of unworthiness bring when you’re trying to be the best you. Anyone with anxiety will relate.

Overall, Kruel Summer’s music is about being carefree and letting go of the stresses of life in a fun way. The band is currently on tour, with some local shows in Southern California. Here at Altwire, we’re very excited about what the future has in store for Kruel Summer!
