Crows formed in 2015 and have since built a considerable following for the intensity of their live shows which have seen the band members break bones as well as instruments. Supporting the likes of Girl Band and Wolf Alice in the past, the band will take their deafening live show on the road in support of IDLES.
With a string of successful singles and EPs under their belt, “Silver Tongues” has been a long while coming. Recorded in near total darkness to build a sense of atmosphere, the album fulfills both their early potential and confidently showcases a band comfortable across a variety of sonic avenues. From the monolithic noise-rock of the title track and opener, to the sky-scraping “Demeanour” and “Wednesday’s Child”, to the blissed-out closer “Dysphoria”, each listen reveals new layers, fresh ideas.
Paying homage to the World Cup songs that have held their own against time, the London-duo’s latest single is an anthem crossing between New Order and Pet Shop Boys – a combination made for a winner, and that’s what this single does. With a light hearted comedic touch, ‘Chin Up’ successfully captures the nostalgic sing-a-longs, shout-a-longs and brings home the patriotism which seemingly peaks every four years.
Releasing the music video on the same day, the cut features members of Wolf Alice and Swim Deep, as well as capturing the heart of British culture, the love of Football.
Wolf Alice have shared a third single as a follow up to predecessors ‘Yuk Foo’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ from their forthcoming album ‘Visions Of A Life’.
The track stays true to its name and is definitely ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ for the London rockers. With its choppy guitars and strutting tune it falls somewhere in the middle of both ‘Yuk Foo’ and ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’.
