STARCRAWLER – ” I Love L.A. “

Ranging from 17 to 22, this quartet kicks out a scuzzy brand of glam-rock and 80s LA hair metal. Arrow de Wilde and Henri Cash write the tunes and alternate on the vocals as Austin Smith and Tim Franco handle the engine room. They wear their influences on their sleeves, they’re practically an encyclopedia of 70s music and they crush it. They’re fun, brash and most importantly; massively talented.

Whether paying homage to The Runaways on “I Love LA” or working on some heavy sludgy jams like Chicken Woman and the closer What I Want, they build each tune on a wicked riff by Cash as Franco & Smith keep the train on the rails. It’d be easy to label these kids as a novelty act but you’d be sadly mistaken. These kids rip it hard.

It puts a smile on this old fucker’s face that kids are still cranking out music like this. They are touring around now and will be at SXSW in Austin Texas this spring where they are an absolute must-see. You never know you might even get bitten.
