The Liverpool alt-rock band’s forthcoming ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’ full-length arrives February 16 via Polydor and has previously been teased by the bracing ‘Would You Come To My Funeral’ and the serene ‘Call It Love’.

‘Kills Me To Be Kind’ is the project’s latest cut and has been described by lead singer Holly Minto as being “a song for all the people pleasers”, adding it’s for:

“The ones ready to settle in a relationship where they felt diminished of their true self and finally breaking out of that moment.”

Speaking about ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’ more broadly, Holly has added: 

“This album debut comes from us honing our craft, being vulnerable with each other, finding our sound and saying exactly what we wanted to. 

“I think that’s a lot of what the Crawlers sound is, being honest with each other about how to get the correct emotions out – trying, failing, and pushing each other to keep playing and writing to the limits.”

Put together at Liverpool’s Coastal Studios, with producer Pete Robertson and engineer Tom Roach, ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’ takes on a whole range of challenging topics: trauma, sexual politics, mental health, the general goings on in a young person’s life.

It features 12 tracks and will be available on various formats including Deluxe CD, white vinyl, blue splatter vinyl and silver glitter cassette.
