Track: Krooked Tongue Share Title Track Of New EP ‘Deathproof’; EP Out Now

‘Deathproof’, is the second studio EP from Bristol-based rock trio Krooked Tongue is out now. The band have shared their title track along with the new EP.

Krooked Tongue burst onto the scene in 2019 with the release of their celebrated debut single ‘I Wanna Steal Your Car’. The band spent 2020 honing in on a more refined studio sound with Josh Gallop (Phoxjaw, Mother Vulture) at Stage 2 Studios in Bath, helping to replicate their formidable live act.  

The result of this was their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘No Vacancy Hotel’ released in February of 2022, which has since amassed over 160,000 streams and saw support from the likes of Ones To Watch, HardBeat Magazine and Distorted Sound Mag.

Their upcoming second EP Deathproof perfectly highlights the band’s evolution; there’s a refreshed maturity to their songwriting and an evident progression in their sound. Fusing punchy, melodic bass riffs, searing lead guitar lines, thundering Seb Granger inspired drum sounds and the cool, collective swagger of Rainsford’s catchy vocals, Deathproof is without doubt their strongest work to date.

Vocalist Oli Rainsford explains:

“‘Deathproof’ is the sort of tune that feels like the climax of our newer tunes. It’s got that ‘grand finale’ energy. Lyrically, it ruminates on my outlook on the state of the world currently. Bad people disguised as good people, normal people being used and pitted against each other. The instinct to know there’s something, many things off kilter with the direction modern society is heading. I think it relates to people. If nothing else, we hope this EP helps to feed into your feelings, or helps you forget about all that noise and just enjoy the music”.

A fresh sounding track with fuzzy bass and ear catching guitars that pick out the verses and then explode in a wall of sound on the chorus. The demanding vocals keep calm while the rest of the band sweep us all up with a somewhat hypnotic maelstrom of sound.
