Crocodiles – “Crybaby Demon” (Stereogum Premiere)
We named Crocodiles a Band To Watch way back in 2009, and since then, they’ve released four full-length albums and a slew of EPs. We haven’t heard much from the Southern California-based duo since 2013’s Crimes Of Passion, but today they announce that they’ve completed a follow-up record titled Boys, which is set to be released in April. The duo traveled to Mexico City to record Boys with producer Martin Thulin, and the album is reportedly heavily influenced by that change in cultural scenery, drawing inspiration from certain elements of traditional Latin rhythms. “Crybaby Demon” is the record’s first single, a jangly experiment in psych-pop that rides on the choral line, “She gets so high.” Listen.
Boys will be out 5/12 via Zoo Music.
