This month, CRAWLERS hit us with the double whammy of a new single and explosive video accompaniment. The four-piece band are the latest powerhouse signing of Modern Sky UK, alongside other local successes such as Jamie Webster, Red Rum Club and Abbie Ozard.
Entering the new year with under 12k followers, CRAWLERS have blown up on social media in a matter of weeks, now boasting a massive 60.5k followers on Instagram alone. 2021 is sure to be a huge success for this band, with their new single, Statues, being added to the “All New Rock” playlist on Spotify.
This track is definitely a good indication of the band’s full potential and exciting future. Made up of Holly Minto on vocals, Amy Woodall on guitar, Liv Kettle on bass, and Harry Breen on drums, CRAWLERS demonstrate an extremely fine-tuned musical ability from all members, as well as addressing important political and social issues.
When discussing the release of this single, the band revealed that “Statues is a commentary on the events of BLM, specifically in America and the UK. It explores injustice in modern society.” They also describe the title of the track as being a metaphor for the falling of the Edward Colsten statue in Bristol.
Released on Friday 19 March, Statues was recorded at the famous Parr Street Studios with producer Chris Taylor (Blossoms, Everything Everything, The Mysterines). We can look forward to the release of the impressive music video on 22 March. It was shot and directed by Matchbox Productions at Matchbox Studios, and is every bit as dark and energetic visually as the track is sonically.
I am already rocking out to this track and absolutely cannot wait to hear more from this incredible group.
