“Mired by a reverence for its influences-- the dark jangle pop of the Jesus and Mary Chain and Echo and the Bunnymen" - Pitchfork
“California noise/pop band Crocodiles pays obvious homage to the shimmering, fuzzed-out pop of the Jesus and Mary Chain, but the group manages to sound more like a tribute than a direct knockoff.” - The Washington Post
“Music to make your brain throb and your mouth grin” - NME
Indie pop veterans Crocodiles are coming to China for the very first time, bringing their dark, noisy take on shoegaze-infused indie rock and post-punk to Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.
Initially formed in 2008, Crocodiles have stayed true to the core of their fuzzy and jangly 80s-influenced sound while steadily expanding into wider territory, encompassing influences from dream pop and noise rock.
2019's "Love Is Here" is their latest offering, with a mix of fuzzed-out, shoegaze and garage-tinged indie rock with some of their sharpest songwriting yet. The oldest song on the album, Prisoners, was composed in 2015 when Brandon and Charlie were both in the middle of emotional turmoil.
Charlie said of the album, “We didn’t have anything planned, but when we put the texts together, we noticed that they often talked about love and hope that only existed because of their opposites, hate and negativity.” Brandon explained, “The theme of the album is how to handle your life after a breakup, the darker and more painful side of love. And everything that was happening in our lives echoed in the political world: Trump being elected, far-rights rising to power all over the world, the paranoia of this era. Everything seemed dark and hopeless.”
