Chino Moreno Reveals Which Song He Feels Best “Encompasses” The Music Of Crosses (†††)


Revolver made the most out of their recent time spent with Deftones, etc. frontman Chino Moreno. Having quizzed the vocalist/guitarist about what song he feels would serve as an introduction to the Deftones catalog, the aforementioned publication also asked him where to get started with the output from his experimental dream pop side project Crosses (†††).

As part of Revolver‘s ongoing ‘Point Of Entry’ series, Moreno opted for a single from the group’s recent comeback EP, “PERMANENT.RADIANT“. His choice was “Vivien” and you can read why he chose it in his own words below:

“I think there’s a reason why we chose that song as the first single [to introduce us] coming back, pretty much. I know we had the [early 2022] “Initiation/Protection” single that kind of came out under the radar. But I just feel like [“Vivien“] encompasses, in the easiest terms, what the project consists of — beat-wise, tempo-wise.

It kind of depends who I’m playing it for. I feel like Crosses lends itself to catering to different people who are in different moods. There’re some pretty sullen tracks, there’re some more aggressive tracks, more romantic tracks. So it kind of depends on what mood I’m trying to convey.”
