With their new album 'Endless Flowers' out now on Souterrain Transmissions, San Diego's Crocodiles release another of it's multi-coloured psychedlic pop gems. Single 'Bubblegum Trash' is released on November 26th ahead of a one off headline show at London's Barfly on November 17th.
Described by the BBC as 'a standout effort, a dirty pop song as perfect as sleeping in the park after a misspent afternoon', 'Bubblegum Trash' has proved a favourite at Crocodiles UK live shows this year. Shows that so far have included a tour supporting The Cribs, an unforgettable packed out Thames riverboat show and Sex Pistol Paul Cooke joining them onstage at 1234 Festival.
Crocodiles have existed in various incarnations since 2008, evolving from the original core of Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell into the five-piece we see today. With two previous albums, 2009's Summer Of Hate and 2010's Sleep Forever, the band garnered righteous praise for their intoxicating blend of scuzzy, surfy, lo-fi noise pop and their thrilling live shows. But, finding themselves having to make a hasty exit from their San Diego hometown last spring, they headed to Europe, landing in Berlin to rehearse and record their superb third album, Endless Flowers.
