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.
Said Welchez of their newest track and its inspirational basis:
“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.”
“Degeneration” was recorded at Quiksilver Studios, St. Jean de Luz, France in September 2021. It was written by Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell, produced by Maxime Smadja, engineered by Mako, and mixed by Mark Rains. It features Atef Aouadhi on bass and Diego Dal Bon on drums.
Stay tuned for Upside Down In Heaven, out April 7 via Lolipop Records.
