For the latest single, 'Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9),' Crocodilesexhibit their blend of poppy hooks, garage rock and artsy focus perfectly; the track is complemented by the video directed by Sam Macon. Littered with religious imagery, Macon has told of how the songs opening lines - "it's Sunday and the world loves itself" - crafted the hazy, religious symbol-heavy video.
San Diego will no longer be known as the home of Ron Burgundy; with the art-punk five-piece exploding onto the scene back in 2008 and crafted a solid name for themselves ever since. The San Diegans have dropped their latest video from the hotly anticipated third album Endless Flowers with the prospect of world domination next on their to-do list.
Endless Summer will showcase the blissed-out, arty pop punk that has been delivered superbly by the group so often in the past. Released through Souterrain Transmissions, the album was recorded in the notorious Berlin nightspot Ficken 2000 over the course of a month, with the group aiming to absorb a similar kind of inspiration that was thrust upon David Bowie during his time of recording in the German capital.
The group will be taking on the rest of the continent throughout the summer, as they aim to bring their colourful set to a whole new audience.
