CRAWLERS today announce details of their debut mixtape “Loud Without Noise”, a broad-spectrum exploration into sex, love and drugs, packaged perfectly within the bands’ repertoire for creating from a non-binary feminist perspective. Set for release on October 28th via Polydor Records, it arrives angsty and assured as ever. Over the course of the six-track-wide tape, the Merseyside natives provide a snapshot of what it means to traverse one’s own boundaries for the aim of gaining autonomy over your body, your sexuality and your emotions. “Loud Without Noise” unequivocally showcases the range of the hotly tipped grunge rockers, from the post-punk guitars of the lead single, right through to the soft acoustics of closing track “Hang Me Like Jesus”, we see the band continuing to mature towards establishing their own individual sound. Thus, this next musical chapter sees the band flexing their musical muscles and letting their burgeoning fanbase know that they’ve got what it takes to continue delivering their own unique brand of emotive and experiential sonics, that speaks to the inner rebels in us all.
‘Loud Without Noise’ is CRAWLERS’ debut mixtape under Polydor Records. Completed by Amy Woodall, Holly Minto, Liv Kettle and Harry Breen, the band formed in 2018 and have been putting in the hard yards, honing their live show with gigs across Merseyside. Word began to spread and soon CRAWLERS were attracting diehards from further afield, racking up 650k followers on TikTok, the band’s knack of injecting personal tales into their universal singalongs connecting on a mass scale. Using their status is of vital importance to what CRAWLERS are about. “It’s really hard to find a safe space – especially for young people, queer people, and other misrepresented or underrepresented groups – and being able to do that with our platform is something we’re looking forward to exploring and breaking boundaries with,” they say.
The band’s debut self-titled EP was released last year on Modern Sky/Lab Records and lead track ‘Come Over (Again)’ has clocked up over 34 million streams on Spotify, 1.8 million views on YouTube and was a Radio 1 Tune Of The Week. It became the band’s first hit when it crashed into the Official UK Singles Chart. Their first Polydor release ‘I Can’t Drive’, released in January this year, was a Jack Saunders Tune Of The Week on Radio 1, receiving rave reviews from NME, Kerrang!, Clash, DIY and Sunday Times Cultures. After supporting My Chemical Romance in May and embarking on a headline tour in North America in June, CRAWLERS will head out on a nationwide UK tour in the autumn that includes a date at London’s Scala on November 2nd.
