This September, Crocodiles are set to release the follow up to 2009's Summer of Hate; and from the sound of this new single, it looks like the band is bringing their fandom of shoegaze to a new level.
"Sleep Forever" has a huge sound. The track is about fifteen stories tall, to be exact. But it refrains from coming off as overbearing. The production slathers everything with a cavernous reverb; reinforcing an already solid wall of sound.
The sound of 60s psych is pretty tough to ignore. The chord progression, the riffs, the prominent tambourine, and the "la la" ending all have a dreamy vibe the oldest of hippies should be able to appreciate. Look for Crocodiles' new LP via Fat Possum, and grab the title track below:
How do you feel about this song? Are you looking forward to this upcoming Crocodiles LP? Are you still mad they "ripped of" the Jesus & Mary Chain? Is the difference between "influencing" and "ripping off" is whether or not you like the band?
