Crocodiles – “Cockroach” (Stereogum Premiere)
Bleary San Diego rockers Crocodiles released Endless Flowers, their last album, just one year ago, and they’ve already announced plans to release Crimes Of Passion, its follow-up, due later this summer. Crocodiles frontman Brandon Welchez is married to Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Dee, and for this album, Crocodiles recruited a frequent Dum Dums collaborator, the Raveonettes, Sune Rose Wagner, to serve as producer. “Cockroach” is the first song we’ve heard from Crimes Of Passion, and it adds just a touch of polish to the band’s druggy roar. Download the song below.
Crimes Of Passion is out 8/20 on Frenchkiss.
