We’re delighted to share with you another addition to the Reckless Yes Records roster as phenomenal Derby garage rock four-piece Pet Crow sign with us.
Arriving seemingly from nowhere early this year for a first gig with Unqualified Nurse Band Pet Crow self-released an EP, Pet Soundz, via Bandcamp in April. They’ll release their debut album through Reckless Yes Records on ltd coloured vinyl and digital formats.
Pete said: “We wanted to sign this band before we had even seen them; their first EP is so brilliant. We had to wait what seemed like an age but in reality was just a few short weeks. And when we did finally see them perform, it was jaw-dropping.
“Bikini Kill attitude, minimalist New Wave swagger and killer hooks all make Pet Crow one of the freshest, most exciting sounding bands I’ve seen in years.
“Their album can’t come soon enough in my opinion and I’m so ridiculously excited to be a part of that!”
Sarah said: “From the band name to reports from that first gig I knew Pet Crow were a band we had to hear. And from the EP through to finally getting to see them play live ourselves they haven’t disappointed.
“There is an amazing energy around this band – in the way they perform and in their sound. It’s a fantastic and fascinating maelstrom of sound that still sounds clear and, at times, breath-holdingly sparse. Scuzzy garage rock, the yelps and yowls of New York new wave, big riffs and bouncing rhythms, and group vocals softening the melody; they are full of possibilities – something I just love.
“I am hugely excited to hear the album and I’m absolutely delighted that they’ve agreed to let us be a part of it by putting it out through Reckless Yes Records.”
More details about the release will follow but for now you can find Pet Crow on Bandcamp, Facebook and Twitter.
