Ground Control Touring Welcomes Crushed

Ground Control Touring Welcomes Crushed

Posted 05/08/2023

Crushed is Bre Morell. Born and raised in Texas, she was a staple of the indie and punk scene, frequently with camera on hand, and hosting her own college radio programs. Morell finally joined the fray in 2017, becoming the lead singer of dream pop misfits Temple of Angels. Despite it being her first band and eventually relocating to Los Angeles, Morell has soared in the spotlight, her sweeping vocals the perfect compliment to the band’s heavier inclinations, and each new release has brought broader acclaim.

Crushed is Shaun Durkan. Born and raised in California, and for many years the lead singer and guitarist of the critically acclaimed noise rock band Weekend. Durkan has more recently been working behind the scenes, working as a sought after producer and working with everyone from Tamaryn (Cranekiss), Young Prisms (Drifter) to Soft Kill (Canary Yellow). He has also been hosting a weekly radio program, playing everything he enjoys these days, including Temple of Angels. Morell noticed, reaching out to say how she used to play his band on her old radio show. The two connected and when they both found themselves in LA studios working on different projects at the beginning of 2022, plans were hatched to collaborate on something together. And Crushed began to take shape.
