"I still have an affinity for the creative use of noise, which that scene introduced us to, but overall, as a singer, if you're just screaming, there's only so much you can do with that," Welchez says. "I'm happy that's what my youth was. I think it taught us a lot about not giving a fuck about what people think and not being afraid to be confrontational if the opportunity calls for it."
The challenging attitude will likely carry over when Crocodiles drops their third effort, Endless Flowers, come early June. Bound to dredge up all those easy comparisons and tags, Welchez prefers one simple descriptive for the sound: "Rock and roll — keep it as broad as possible, you know?"
