Starcrawler - I Love LA

Starcrawler are a Los Angeles rock band who formed two years ago when lead vocalist Arrow de Wilde first met drummer Austin Smith. Shortly thereafter, she found guitarist Henri Cash at her Echo Park high school and LA nativeTim Franco (bass). They play with squalling riffs and thundering beats, and their incendiary performances, fronted by de Wilde’s otherworldly magnetism, recalls nothing as much as a youthful amalgam of the Cramps, the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and Alice Cooper.

They released their debut single “Ants” in 2017 and London DJ Matt Wilkinson quickly discovered the track and played it on his Beats One show, after which the track made its way to Zane Lowe and Sir Elton John, both of which spun the track repeatedly. The band made several trips to the UK and Europe over the remainder of the year and opened for bands such as the Foo Fighters and Black Lips in the USA. Starcrawler will released their debut album on January 19, 2018 recorded with Ryan Adams in his Pax AM studio in Hollywood. It features their present single “I Love LA” and is out everywhere on Rough Trade / Beggars.
