Exciting L.A. newcomers Starcrawler make their Rough Trade debut with rock 'n' roll rivivalist track 'Ants'. Citing influences from Iggy Pop to The Runaways and Kiss, Starcrawler are bringing back the glam rock of the seventies with a freshly fuzzed out new sound. Starcrawler play to their strengths in the accompanying video, which captures one of their exhillerating live performances at The Echo in L.A. Singer Arrow De Wilde's incredible frontwomanship is at the forefront conjuring memories of the greats from, David Bowie to Ozzy Osbourne and Karen O as she explains, "I slowly started to create this character, this alter ego maniac”. Starcrawler play 3 dates in London next week at The Old Blue Last, Thousand Island and the Shacklewell Arms. There's no excuse not to see these guys. -HLMX
