Listen to the gripping album HERE!
“There’s really no place like L.A.,” says Arrow. “It’s fascinating. It’s one of the darkest places you can imagine, and at the same time, it’s sparkly and glamorous and enticing. I think that’s what Starcrawler is all about capturing.” They capture that, along with the universal vibe of being young enough to take risks, smart enough to know how to turn those risks into rewards and tough enough to come out of any mess still looking great.
"Blending the sludgy, doom-laden riffs of Black Sabbath with the urgent pop-punk of the Runaways, the young LA band Starcrawler are a group whose entire DNA seems linked to the 1970s. The white tasselled flares of lead singer, Arrow de Wilde, match the aesthetic of the group’s back-to-basics rock’n’roll." - The Guardian wrote about their new album.
The dynamic young L.A.-bred quartet has been wiping the jaded looks off audiences across their hometown since making their live debut back in 2016, dragging the unsuspecting into their universe with hooks that sink into the synapses and refuse to let go – and enough electricity to light up the entire Sunset Strip.
The jolts they deliver come from a number of directions, none more direct than singer Arrow de Wilde, whose penchant for intense, sometimes assaultive, physicality is matched by a full-throated hard rock wail that tightropes between glam-rock sensuality and full-metal-jacket menace.

Some press for Starcrawler:
“Arrow de Wilde is what would have happened if Ozzy Osbourne and Patti Smith had got together in 1975 and had a kid” – Classic Rock
“Glam – shock Los Angeles delinquents find hope for rock n’ roll” - Mojo
“Step back, mopey indie rock singers, because a wild young lead vocalist named Arrow de Wilde has been tearing through the city, kicking up rock ’n’ roll dust with the force of the Tasmanian Devil.” – Los Angeles Times
“Starcrawler Channels the Most Iconic '90s Rock Groups in the BEST Way” – Teen Vogue
“Tales of de Wilde’s onstage antics could fill a dissertation, as this performance poises equatable only to the likes of Iggy and the Stooges onstage debauchery, the PJ Harvey Trio’s lightning god rock, and the sexually charged cabaret no wave of Lydia Lunch. Ultimately, Starcrawler are simply the most exciting - and best - band Rough Trade have signed in years." – Gigwise
