Crawlers Release New Music Video for Latest Single ‘That Time Of Year Always

British rock band Crawlers have released the music video for their latest single “That Time Of Year Always.” The video features the group alongside their younger selves who the band refer to as “mini crawlers” in their latest Instagram Post. The single’s release has been timed to align with the start of spring, and the song is already gaining traction among fans and critics alike.

Lead singer Holly Minto has shared that the new track is inspired by the feeling of envying one’s younger self before the trauma hits in one’s early 20s. It’s about missing the ignorance and simplicity of childhood and reflects on the longing for youth that many people feel throughout the year, rather than just during the winter season. The band’s sentiment behind the song creates an atmosphere around the release that invites their audience to experience a snapshot into their world, told from their own perspective.

Crawlers consists of Amy Woodall, Holly Minto, Liv Kettle, and Harry Breen, and the band has come a long way since their formation in 2018. They started by playing small gigs in their hometown of Merseyside, but they have seen massive chart success with the release of their debut mixtape “Loud Without Noise” last November. The mixtape was accompanied by a string of sold-out headline shows across the UK in the same month. Liverpool’s hottest new rock export has proven themselves to be on a trajectory to conquer both the live and streaming spaces respectively in 2023.

Aside from their incredibly infectious grungy musical explorations, which continue to capture the zeitgeist of their generation and beyond, the band’s authentic approach to managing their social presence has contributed to their success. They have a knack for injecting their personal tales into universal singalongs that have connected with a mass audience. The band’s status is of vital importance to what Crawlers are about, and they are keen to explore and break boundaries with their platform. “It’s really hard to find a safe space – especially for young people, queer people, and other misrepresented or underrepresented groups – and being able to do that with our platform is something we’re looking forward to,” they say.

Crawlers’ debut self-titled EP was released in 2021 on Modern Sky/Lab Records, and the lead track ‘Come Over (Again)’ clocked up over 34 million streams on Spotify, 1.8 million views on YouTube, and was a Radio 1’s Tune Of The Week. It became the band’s first hit when it crashed into the Official UK Singles Chart, with Dork Magazine describing the band’s ascent as “coming at a time when emo has stopped being an insult, and that melodramatic music is resonating with a new generation.” Their first Polydor release, ‘I Can’t Drive,’ was a Jack Saunders Tune Of The Week on Radio 1, receiving rave reviews from key stakeholders in the alternative press from Kerrang! to Clash, DIY, and Sunday Times Cultures. Following their first head-turning release on a major label, NME described Crawlers as an act “embodying what it means to be a young band for the current moment – fluid in style, chronically online and willing to take on difficult subjects in a thoughtful way.”

After supporting My Chemical Romance on tour last May, performing at Radio 1’s Big Weekender, embarking on a sold-out headline tour in North America last June, and their own sold-out EU/UK headlining tour last November, Crawlers are one of the most hotly tipped live bands in the UK for 2023. Furthermore, the release of their debut mixtape ‘Loud Without Noise’ cemented their global status, contributing to the band achieving the massive milestone of 80+
