Crocodiles Announce New LP
Today, Crocodiles (Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell) announce their highly anticipated forthcoming LP, Upside Down In Heaven (due April 7 via Lolipop Records). To introduce the record, they have shared its first single, “Degeneration”, alongside an accompanying music video, directed by Kate Clover and one half of the Crocodiles duo, Brandon Welchez.
“The heaviness of life on a violent, dying planet can often push us towards our worst impulses. ‘Degeneration’ was written in the boiling, diseased summer of 2020 where I found myself overworked, underpaid and choking on wildfire smoke. The free time I had was spent doom-scrolling the latest covid death toll or inundating myself with news of literal fascists marching the streets. I found myself floating on a cloud of anger, fear and frustration. Rather than allow myself to fall into bad old habits or succumb to my negative emotions, I poured myself into my music. Talking about my degeneration beats actively seeking it out,” says Welchez.
