San Diego’s Crocodiles are a duo comprising Charles Rowland on guitar and synth and Brandon Welchez on programming and vocals. The two play feedback-drenched indie rock that conjures the ghost of Jesus and Mary Chain. Song titles like “I Wanna Kill” and “Summer of Hate” belie the sweet pop melodies and enticing, noise-enriched punk-pop ethos that makes up the band’s aesthetic. A series of 7-inch singles preceded a deal with Fat Possum Records, which released the group’s debut full-length, SUMMER OF HATE, in 2009.
