CRUX – ‘Smiling Man’ Music Video Launch


A Collaboration Between Local Creatives

Music  ++  Film  ++  Fashion

Sliema, MLT – 2nd November 2016 – CRUX has collaborated with two local creatives to produce a music video for ‘Smiling Man’, the fourth single from the album ‘Ego Vs Ego’, released in early 2016.

‘Smiling Man’ is a dark atmospheric composition accompanied with an even darker narration, voiced by Jeff Clement, that reaches a climax in various parts of the plot.

The idea to create an obscure music video came when CRUX met Steven Levi Vella, a film director known for his sinister style. He suggested using the latest collection PARASCANDÅLO 1 on the models involved in this project. Local brand PARASCANDÅLO previously reached out to CRUX asking them to perform at a fashion show held in Birgu during the Malta Fashion Week.

The music video will be showcased on the 20th of November at The Funky Monkey in Manoel Island.  This will be followed with a DJ set by CRUX. PARASCANDÅLO will also be joining at the video launch, having created a limited edition PARASCANDÅLO X CRUX t-shirt. The event starts at 19:00  and has no entrance charge. Further details can be found on our Facebook event page:

About CRUX

Formed sometime in 2014, CRUX is one of the newest arrivals on the Maltese music scene, but behind the dark veils one finds some familiar faces with a wealth of experience and talent. Not so much a band but rather a musical collective brought together by a love for synthesised sounds. The end result is a seamless sound that all at once references the electronic vanguard of our time yet also evokes the spirit of those artists who pioneered the genre.
