TOTD: ‘Come Over Again’ – CRAWLERS
Liverpudlian powered-up misfits CRAWLERS have had a whirlwind 12 months. The alt.rock band have become synonymous with an eclectic brand of music combining grunge, rock, pop and indie into a sound packed full of attitude and socially conscious lyricism. An attitude that has seen the band explode on social media.
From the grunge-tinged fuzz of last year’s Hush and the breathless, politically charged Statues, to the bristling, abrasive sonics of recent single MONROE, CRAWLERS take no prisoners. Come Over (Again) is the final single to be released from the band’s debut EP, and is a further example of their distinct versatility. Diverging from the heavy, corrosive soundscapes that have become their trademark, Come Over (Again) embraces the ethereal ambience and intimate vulnerability of the likes of Julia Holter and Angel Olsen.
Commenting on the track, the band state that “Come Over (Again) is a song we’re all incredibly proud of. The whole writing process in the studio lifted the song from a small and gentle acoustic number to an enormously abrasive and emotional coup. We’ve never done anything like it before and it has shown us what we’re really capable of as musicians.”
Produced by Pete Robertson (Vaccines, Beabadoobee) and mixed by Tom Roach (The Lathums, Vistas, Dirty Hit) at Coastal Studios, Come Over (Again) catapults CRAWLERS into a whole new sphere in terms of musicianship and songwriting. The diversity of their debut EP demonstrates the range this quartet are capable of; brash yet mellow, harsh but sweet.
