I’m alive! And angry! Haha not really, though my choice of song for today might have you thinking that. I’ve liked Crocodiles since I first heard them a few years ago, and in fact have fine memories of delivering pizza while blasting their first album. They’re a noise pop band, at least according to Wikipedia, and I find that description pretty spot on. Soundwise, the band is a bit like No Age, another group that does what they do, but without the same sense of melody. It’s the reason I don’t really like No Age, by the way, and the reaon I really like Crocodiles.
While I never have and don’t believe I will ever seriously get into noise rock and shoegaze, bands like Japandroids and Crocodiles at least have me singing along for a few songs before I lose interest and move on to less subgenre-y forms of rock. I guess my ears fatigue from the distortion or something. Whatever, man. If you like this, be sure to check out Crocodiles’ two albums, Summer of Hate and Sleep Forever.
