Don’t Believe The Hype – L.A. Glam And Glitter Rockers STARCRAWLER Have Their Third Album ‘SHE SAID’ Out

New longplayers

19 September 2022

Who: Glam and glitter rockers from Los Angeles,
fronted by the utterly charismatic Aaron Dewilde.
Albums: Starcrawler (2018), Devour You (2019)
and now the new one.

New album: SHE SAID
Released: 16 September 2022 – buy here

Classic Rock Mag: “When you’ve built a reputation around taking it to the limit,
where do you go next? After two albums of high-intensity, febrile punk rock, you get the
feeling that Californian urchins Starcrawler were finding that to be a pressing question. Whirlwind frontwoman Arrow de Wilde has hinted that being stuck in top gear is beginning
to feel limited, while stage stunts such as spitting fake blood over the audience have
begun to “feel like a schtick”.
Score: 3/5.

Henri Cash (guitarist): “We wanted to make songs on this record
for everyone. For people that weren’t just into punk rock.”

TUTV: Starcrawler promised a more varied, sonically, LP than the 2 previous ones.
But the new record is still filled, mostly, with classic retro rock jackhammers, but less punky and fierce than before, with echoes of West-Coast glam legends Mötley Crüe and Quiet Riot (Roadkill / She Said / Stranded / True / Runaway) a couple of dream pop ditties (Broken Angels / Midnight) and a smooth candlelight closer Better Place. Except for a couple tracks, this LP is too mediocre to remember… in a week. Don’t believe the hype.

Singles/clips: Stranded / Roadkill / Broken Angels

Who: Rowdy rock 5-piece from Los Angeles
led by eccentric frontwoman Arrow de Wilde
Active: Since 2015 / 2 albums so far

New single: ROADKILL

Dewilde: “‘Roadkill’ is about anyone that tries to dig their heels
in the ground and stand in your way. We’ve all had people try to tear
us down, and sometimes you just have to run right through them.”

Turn Up The Volume: This L.A. troupe interweave classic rock
and garage grit with glam gusto and razor-edged riffage. Eccentric
mutineer Arrow de Wilde erupts with asperity and fortitude.
Vicious swipe.

Don’t mess with these mavericks…
