Our Overview. 

Born on the streets of Los Angeles, Starcrawler is a band possessed by the spirit of its own hometown - steeped in the city’s cultural history, particularly the myths and stories of Sunset Strip, the Chateau Marmont and Rodney’s English Disco - every movement charged with a manic electricity. Since forming in 2015, vocalist Arrow de Wilde, guitarist/vocalist Henri Cash, bassist Tim Franco, and drummer Austin Smith have gone from bashing out songs in the garage to winning the love of such legendary artists as Shirley Manson and Elton John. And now their remarkable sophomore album ‘Devour You’ is a record that dynamically captures the essence and aggression of their gloriously unhinged live shows. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) at Sunset Studios, ‘Devour You’ takes the feral intensity of their 2018 self-titled debut and twists it into something grander and more gracefully composed.

With its more elaborate and nuanced yet harder hitting sonic palette, the result is a selection of songs radiating both raw sensitivity and untameable power and a record that the band’s Arrow de Wilde says “encapsulates all the blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers of a Starcrawler show.”
