Crocodylus – Social Climber

Sydney garage-rock trio Crocodylus describe themselves as ‘Northern Beaches most disappointing band’. Well, if the band was already surrounded by disappointment, they definitely shake it off with their new single.

‘New’ is relative, by the way. Social Climber was written four years ago. It was recorded right before Sydney went into lockdown earlier this year. A jangly garage rock anthem-in-waiting, it’s the band’s most dynamic and poignant song yet.

Crocodylus frontman Josh Williams offers some insights… “This song’s about being in a relationship with someone who’s climbing the non existent social ladder. It’s about trying to make the relationship work but it all becomes too much. Manipulation and jealousy comes into play as well as some 12 string and organ action. The song was written a few years ago and it’s sick to see it finally recorded with a full band.”

Social Climber is one half of a double A-side 7″. The other half, Camouflage, will come out on 16 October. Crocodylus have used their recent downtime well, working on their forthcoming debut album. The long-flayer is slated for release in 2021.
