‘Let Her Be’ is the opening track on Starcrawler’s forthcoming, Ryan Adams-produced debut album, due out via Rough Trade in early 2018. Adams has described the four-piece as “the future of the rock ‘n’ roll legacy of bands like KISS, X, Sonic Youth and The Stooges”. Big words, but they’re being backed up by stuff like this.
The director of the ‘Let Her Be’ video, J. Casey Modderno, wanted to capture some of Starcrawler’s “amazing live presence” in the promo – “We decided to run with a super visceral and physical performance, full of motion, and tons of fun.”
“Losing my GD mind over this band Starcrawler,” is how My Chemical Romance’s founding frontman Gerard Way reacted to witnessing the breaking-through LA band for the first time. “A blend of almost all of my favourite stuff but completely new. Super refreshing to see this mix of 1970s theatricality and Stooges electricity. I want to buy the t-shirt. Check it out.”
Starcrawler play Actress & Bishop Birmingham on Sat 4th November 2017. Tickets available here.
