The Liverpool band’s ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’ LP arrives February 16 and has so far been preceded by recent single ‘Would You Come To My Funeral’.

The new track typifies their grunge-influenced sound and depicts the trials and tribulations of falling in love.

Have a listen to the new track via the lyric video below.

Speaking about the new track, lead singer Holly Minto has said:

“‘Call It Love’ romanticises the desire to love someone despite it being a toxic situation. You call a relationship love because you feel like that’s what you deserve, but that doesn’t mean that that’s what it actually is.”

And adding further about the album as a whole, which gives a sense of why a track like ‘Call It Love’ features, she 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.”

‘The Mess You Seem To Make’ is said to take on a range of challenging topics: trauma, sexual politics, mental health, the general goings on in a young person’s life.

It sees them team up once again with producer Pete Robertson and engineer Tom Roach at Liverpool’s Coastal Studios, and follows an impressive 2023 for the band who not only played Glastonbury and Download festival this summer but also supported YUNGBLUD at Cornwall’s Eden Project.
