Crocodiles Debut Video For "Upside Down In Heaven"

One of our favourite bands, and first to support Northern Transmissions, Crocodiles, comprised of Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell, release their new album, Upside Down In Heaven on April 7th via Lolipop Records. Along with the albums release, Crocodiles have shared a brand new Russell Cash directed video for the title-track.

As described by Russell Cash: “After a prolonged hiatus, Crocodiles finally reconvened at Quiksilver Studios in St. Jean de Luz, France in the fall of 2021 to get their new album Upside Down In Heaven down on tape. Maxime Smadja (Rixe, Boss) was entrusted with production duties and brought his signature greasy sheen to the proceedings. Joining the party were Atef Aouadhi and Diego Dal Bon on bass and drums. In typical Crocodilian fashion, the album zig-zags cohesively from one style to the next. There are straight-up punk-pop anthems (Love Beyond The Grave), mutant garage-rock (Surfing With Death), infectious fuzz-pop (Forever Walk Alone), dance-floor ready bangers (Deadbeat) and even hardcore death-rock (Rock & Roll Graveyard). The songs are direct, cut to the chase and leave listeners thirsting for more.”

Following previous singles “Degeneration” and “Love Beyond The Grave,” today, the band also places emphasis on the record’s title track and final single, “Upside Down In Heaven.”

On the single, Charles Rowell wrote:

“Maybe I was chasing that elusive Stiff records sound or simply trying something that would make Westerberg smile. Either way it’s pure pop for heads who appreciate lyrics and melody. It’s a little sad but triumphant and true. If you’ve ever felt like you’re a little too far from home, like you’ve chased the dream until it’s turned into a nightmare, then here’s another song burning with regret and wasted wisdom.”
