Sydney boys Crocodylus are on an absolute tear this year, picking up FBi’s Independent Artist of the Week nod on their way to getting the call-up to go on a big tour with Skegss early next year.
They’ve got plenty to keep them busy until then, though, as they’ve just unveiled their new single ahead of the release of their sophomore EP and tour in November – and it’s a blinder, telling a tale that’ll be instantly familiar to anyone who’s been to a half-decent rock gig in their lives.
“’Sweaty Already’ is the hottest, sweatiest song in our live set,” lead singer Josh Williams says. “The crowd loves it, because who can’t relate to being sweaty?”
“I walked into Freda’s to watch The Ruminaters and I instantly started to sweat. I said to my friend next to me ‘I’m sweaty already’, and he said ‘write a song’”.
Carrying on the laid-back surf-infused feel seen on previous tracks like ‘Christian Syrups’, it’s a tight dash of three-man garage rock that’ll fit in perfectly in front of Skegss when it comes time to tour with them next year, and the band are feeling pretty excited.
“Its really crazy and surreal being asked to play on this tour with Skegss, we’re beyond stoked and big fans of them for sure,” they tell us. “The tour is gonna be like a big summer holiday! Going through smaller towns really adds to that rural getaway vibe.”
Crocodylus have had plenty of chances to get seasoned already, playing gigs with Los Scallywaggs, The Lemon Twigs, The Pinheads, Drunk Mums, Donny Benet and Hockey Dad, and we reckon their EP launch tour might be one to catch when it kicks off in November – check out the dates below.
