You’re 100% About To Love Crooked Teeth’s “Crawl” Feat. Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic (Noise Exclusive)


Listen up, everybody. Here at The Noise, it’s not every day we get to premiere a song that emotionally knocked us on our ass – you know, where as soon as we heard it we didn’t know whether to dance like a lunatic smiling until our cheeks hurt or sob uncontrollably because the song hit us 1000% in the feels. We’re sure you’ve been there before. 

Now, instead of detailing the kind of emotional wreck we were after first hearing Crooked Teeth’s somber new single “Crawl” featuring Stand Atlantic’s Bonnie Fraser, we’re instead going to let singer/guitarist Tyson Evans explain what the song’s all about – because really, who wants to hear us go on and on about our feelings?      

“’Crawl’ is a song that our producer Matt Lang brought to us in the spring of 2016,” he explains. “We really dug the hook and the lyrical standpoint of the chorus. I wrote the verses based off a similar experience I had. It’s definitely my personal favorite song in our current catalog. This is a song about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship be it platonic or intimate. It’s about healing, learning and moving on from an experience that could have potentially altered your core in a negative sense.”

As for how Fraser got involved on the track, Evans says, “I just naturally discovered Stand Atlantic by way of a Spotify curated playlist based on what I had been listening to. I loved ’Coffee at Midnight’ and I thought it was dope that the band was a three-piece as we are as well. Bonnie displays a ton of emotion when she sings and that’s something we really wanted to add to this song. I also wanted the song to be sort of a back and forth from the bridge through the end. I thought it would be cool for the story and the lines of resistance towards toxicity to be sung by a woman versus a guy just blabbing on about some heart-break the whole time. Bonnie killed it and we are so stoked.”
