Crow Follow are a "Boston urban cabaret and velvet shaman swamp rock brigade." That description might not make a whole lot of sense until you listen to their new single. "Indiana Line" is rooted in rock 'n' roll and the kind of rockabilly infused punk that bands like X created. It's a raucous and groove filled track that also leans into the sound of someone like The B-52's. "Indiana Line" is a party waiting to happen, but it also seems to have a level of darkness hidden deep within. This is a great song if you're looking for weirdo rock and punk based party music that won't scare the normies... too much.
Crow Follow's ringleader, Tim Sprague, says of the new song:
“‘Indiana Line’ has a few layers. On one level, it’s a road trip song made of little scenes seen out the window as you drive through the wreckage of American family farming and the post-apocalyptic shell of American industrial culture. ‘Indiana Line’ is also, more deeply, a song about the immortality of love in the face of death and wrecked dreams.”
You can watch the video for "Indiana Line" below. Red Velvet Radio is due out September 30. For more on Crow Follow, check out the band's website.
