Crocodiles Play the Late Show Tomorrow Night

April 11th, 2012

After previous bands of theirs had broken up, childhood friends Charles Rowell and Brandon Welchez formed Crocodiles, a lo-fi noise-pop band based in San Diego, in 2008. The duo’s sound has been compared to Echo & the Bunnymen’s and that of a stripped-down version of the Jesus and Mary Chain’s. (Think sunny melodies and dirty feedback.) Their newest album, Endless Flowers, comes out later this year, but they’re out on the road now. Despite recording as a two-piece, Crocodiles (above, doing “Mirrors” for KEXP FM) perform live as a four-piece, which you can see in person when they play the late show at Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.
