"Crawl The Night" (BARE BONES) - NEW SINGLE REVIEW
SINGLE: Crawl The Night // ARTIST: Bare Bones
Come lose yourself to a swaggering, searing slice of punked-up rock from Sydney gents Bare Bones and their brand new track 'Crawl The Night'.
Lurching back to life after their debut album in 2017, Bare Bones have this week returned with a vengeance, carving up a crushing piece of punk rock with a hardcore soul in the form of 'Crawl The Night'. Boasting chunky riffs, vivid beats and some caustically controlled vocals, 'Crawl The Night' pulls off the impossible - expanding significantly on the critically acclaimed Bare Bones debut 'Bad Habits' without sacrificing their rock fusion that so meaningfully discerns them from the alt-rock fray.
Boasting shredded tones amid some rigid reflection into the destructive behaviour that can accompany life's dark moments, 'Crawl The Night' not only crushes sonically, but also thematically, with vocalist Thomas Kennedy explaining that the track is about "being at your wits end with the war within your mind and your mental state, the inability to shoot straight with yourself and make changes and instead turning to self destructive tendencies. It explores the ups, downs, trials and tribulations that come with those choices".
Once again releasing through iconic heavy music label Resist Records (also home to the likes of Parkway Drive, Polaris and more), there's a whole lot to get excited about for the Bare Bones lads, including an upcoming single launch in Sydney and Melbourne in August, as well as an appearance at the legendary Dead of Winter festival in Brisbane this July. Our advice? Brace yourself for more sonic mayhem from this group who have well and truly fleshed out their burgeoning take on the heavy world - 'Crawl The Night' is just the beginning.
