Last time they came to London in support of their new record 'Endless Flowers' (out now on Souterrain Transmissions), Crocodiles had a cruise bouncing down the Thames, packed full of people hurling about the place to their trademark scuzzy noise pop. Accompanied by Dum Dum Girls' Dee Dee and reggae songstress Hollie Cook on backing vocals, the show was hailed by many on board as one of the best gigs they've ever seen.
Crocodiles has existed in various incarnations since 2008, evolving from the original core of Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell into the five-piece we see today. With two previous albums, 2009's 'Summer Of Hate' and 2010's 'Sleep Forever', the band garnered righteous praise for their blend of scuzzy, surfy noise pop and thrilling live shows. But, finding themselves having to beat a hasty exit from their San Diego hometown last spring, they headed to Europe, landing in Berlin to rehearse and record 'Endless Flowers'.
