We loved their debut EP released last April, Pet Soundz, so since Pet Crow signed to Derby label Reckless Yes we’ve been anticipating their long-player.
Titled A Simple Guide To Small And Medium Pond Life we now know this will be released on 24 February digitally and on limited coloured vinyl. You can already make a digital pre-order through their Bandcamp while pre-order for the vinyl is set to follow shortly.
The band has also announced a tour to run-up to the release although we have to wait until 16 May for them to play Derby (at the Hairy Dog with Brunch and Modern Rituals) as they head over to Nottingham to launch the album at the Fan Club night at Rough Trade on 24 February.
Sarah Lay, half of Reckless Yes alongside Pete Darrington, said of the band: “There is an amazing energy – in the way they perform and in their sound. It’s a fantastic and fascinating maelstrom that still sounds clear and, at times, breath-holdingly sparse. Scuzzy garage rock, the yelps and yowls of New York new wave, big riffs and bouncing rhythms, and group vocals softening the melody; they are full of possibilities – something I just love.”
