Southern California’s Crooked Teeth will re-issue their PASTEL EP on 11th May via Rude Records. To mark the announcement, the band unveils new single “Crawl” in the form of a heartfelt music video.
“Crawl is about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship, be it platonic or intimate. It’s about healing, learning and moving on from an experience that could have potentially altered your core in a negative sense.
Our producer, Matt Lang, brought this to us in the spring of 2016. We really dug the hook and the lyrical standpoint of the chorus. I wrote the verses based off a similar experience I had. It’s definitely my personal favorite song in our current catalogue.”- Tyson Evans, vocals & guitar
The track features guest vocals from Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic.
“I naturally discovered Stand Atlantic by way of a Spotify curated playlist based on what I had been listening to. I loved ‘Coffee at Midnight’ and I thought it was dope that the band was a three-piece as we are as well. Bonnie displays a ton of emotion when she sings and that’s something we really wanted to add to this song. I also wanted the song to be sort of a back and forth from the bridge through the end. I thought it would be cool for the story and the lines of resistance towards toxicity to be sung by a woman versus a guy just blabbing on about some heartbreak the whole time. Bonnie killed it and we are so stoked”
