Crawlers Premieres New Song “Messiah” on BBC Radio 1
Liverpool-based alt-rock band Crawlers, consisting of Holly Minto (vocals), Amy Woodall (guitar), Liv Kettle (bass) and Harry Breen (drums), premiered a new song “Messiah” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the follow-up to “That Time Of Year Always”, which was released back in March.
The track was written by Holly Minto, Amy Woodall, Olivia Kettle, Harry Breen, and Jennifer Decilveo.
Produced by Pete Robertson and Jennifer Decilveo.
Holly Minto told Clara Amfo about the song, “Originally wrote it live and I live together chaotic time of our lives. I was on the sofa and I wrote this song. Originally it didn't have manipulate. I'm gonna let an audience member choose what word that is because I can't say it on the radio. And they were like, 'you shouldn't have that lyric because you want it on the radio.' and I was like, 'I don't know if I'll make on the radio.' But here we are. So you're right guys. Manipulate was the one.”
- She continued, “And we it was our first song that we didn't write in the UK. We finished off in LA. I've never been to America before and we didn't have an AC in the room. And we went a bit crazy. And I think that's why I was just as blunt as the lyrics are in this song, I think.”
She added, “I think producers were really scared because we came in as a band, and they were like, 'Whoa, it's all four of you here and we're like way ready to write magic, baby.' It's so used to like one person coming in. But apparently you get everyone when you come in with us.”
Also, they talked about their experiences in Los Angeles, “It's funny because obviously our whole me with the band is that we can't drive. So go to LA as a trip because they look at you so strange when you're walking they're like, 'Wow, you walk at so crazy' like 'you guys you're not gonna get an Uber.' And I'm like, 'No, I'm gonna walk' and then you realize why they don't walk because it's 42 degrees. Yeah, culture shock moment, for sure.”
