Crocodile

I wanted to let you know about a great little EP that will be released this week. The band is Crocodile from Austin, Texas and they are bringing a fresh new take on the classic sound of The Beatles yet not dated as such. They are indie pop rock swaddled in a 60’s vibe that bring the right balance between melody and fuzz that is inviting and quite addictive.  Their new EP Crocodile Vs. The Mutant Alligators From Space will have you thinking you are listening to a lost reel from The Beatles. They have successfully capture the innocence of music and wrapped it in a style that will have you captive from first listen.  Gianni talks about the EP recording process, “[It] is very personal for me. A lot of trial and error, I very rarely know exactly where a song is going. I like to look at it as the songs shaping themselves and me being just a medium.” As for the future? “I’ve been recording a lot of songs on my own that I’m compiling into a concept album I’ll be (hopefully) releasing by the end of the year.” Keep an eye out, and catch up with Crocodile on Facebook, Twitter, and Bandcamp, and grab the new EP when it drops June 17th.”

It starts off with my personal favorite Somehow that just immediately brings me back to my childhood listening to my older sister’s Beatles albums. While it reminds me of the Beatles, it in no way imitates since Crocodile have created their own unique sound by bringing layers and depth into their music. Check out the track here:

 

The second track, Exit has this very stripped down impressive intro that creates a big impact. The vocals are amazing as they come in and take a hold of you as you travel on the journey of their music. Storm Song takes it a bit darker with it’s emotionally driven lyrics that might have you thinking you are helpless but instead, the lyrics and the vocals wrap around you like a warm comforting hug. My Friend has a great uptempo vibe that brings a fun flirty side to the song that is sure to become a fan favorite. Plastic Towns has a very raw honest feel to it as the acoustic and stripped down vocals come in. It creates such a vulnerability yet with emotionally driven lyrics conveys a powerful consciousness.

The EP is five great songs that will soon be the soundtrack of your summer. You can pick it up on June 17th. Crocodile have announced their release show set for June 27th at the Spider House in Austin. You can visit their Facebook Event page for more details. I will leave you with a video for their song Rachel which is off their album After a While and is available on iTunes.

 

Make sure to visit their social media sites and pick up the EP on June 17th.  We will see if we can bring you an interview with them soon.
