Bursting onto the scene is a new band that are making the task of blowing up online look easy.
Liverpool-based four-piece Crawlers have been releasing music since 2019’s “So Tired”, but it’s their 2021 single “Come Over (Again)” which you might recognise. The single, supposedly about going back to a toxic ex, took on a life of its own on TikTok, with users taking the song as an inspiration for their own stories of seeking triumph from trauma. The sound has over 100,000 uses to-date.
Their self-titled debut EP, released at the end of 2021, has gained nearly 30M global streams acts as a mission statement for the band’s brutally honest, stadium-worthy rock music. On singles such as fan favourite “Statues” lead singer Holly sings of feelings following the Black Lives Matter movement whilst “MONROE” is, as one fan Tweets, a “gerlboss anthem” of self-discovery.
Kicking off 2022, Crawlers have released “I Can’t Drive”, a song that the band describe on Instagram as being, “about the worst part of [my] life and recovery”. The single sets up what is due to be a wild Summer for the band, which includes sets at Lollapalooza, Neighbourhood Weekender and a North American Tour.
With a charging energy and committed fan base, it’s safe to say that Crawlers are set to be the next British band that everyone’s talking about.
