‘Tuned Out’ by Crocodile Tears Is Poppy Retro Rock Music

7 12 18 Crocodile Tears‘Tuned Out’ by Crocodile Tears is poppy retro rock music with a punk-imbued inflection. “Crocodile Tears is a four piece rock n’ roll outfit from Austin,” the band says. “Instead of relying on trickery or false imagery, Crocodile Tears crafts songs that leave the listener affected,” they say. “Rock n’ roll is meant to do things to the heart, and it’s been designed for the groove since Chuck Berry first duck walked.” These guys have a glammy-yet-raw aesthetic reminiscent of Thin Lizzy. There’s something uniquely proletarian and masculine about this song, yet it’s somehow also rooted in poppy, saccharine grooves that seem diametrically opposed to that ideology. Through all of this, it seems like there’s a distinct pop punk sensibility in here. These guys wouldn’t be totally out of place in the world of Sugarcult or Lit. This band has a lot to offer.
