Listen to Crawlers’ fierce new song ‘I Don’t Want It’

The track comes ahead of performances at Reading & Leeds this weekend

Crawlers have shared a brand new single – listen to the Liverpool band’s latest track, ‘I Don’t Want It’, below.

The track comes ahead of performances at Reading & Leeds this weekend, and follows the release of recent single ‘Fuck Me (I Didn’t Know How To Say)’.

Discussing the new song, vocalist Holly Minto said: “‘I Don’t Want It’ encompasses what it is like to be growing up in the current state of society and how it has affected the mental health of the modern generation from a 1st and 3rd perspective.

“I have a lot of unhealthy habits that I am very self-aware of, however they don’t seem to change and seem to manifest into worse problems which I try to ignore, this isn’t really my own issue either, so many of us are aware of our own self-destructive behaviours but we ignore them for the sake of it being easier than recovery. I think the song actually took fruition when my therapist said “you’re very self-aware, aren’t you?”.

“It’s very much a curse that we all, especially gen Z share. Maybe because self-deprecation has become such a normalised thing, which I hate but I can’t help but feed into. Writing it was a good way of me getting out a lot of behaviours I want to change about myself as well as critiquing other behaviours that society tends to normalise while growing up in your teens and early 20s.”

Minto added: “As soon as Amy sent me the riff I instantly knew I wanted to get these particular feelings out and create a song with the guys that sounds like the music I am listening to, especially when I am engaging in the behaviours mentioned in the lyrics, which has always been indie with a killer riff and a fat hook – kinda full circle in a way.”

During a recent interview with NME, the band teased that a big announcement is coming at Reading & Leeds this weekend – a slot that they described as a “full circle” and “bucket list” moment for all four band members.

“We’ve got something special lined up for Reading & Leeds,” Amy Woodall said. “We’re gonna be revealing something that Reading & Leeds people will hear first,” Minto added. “Probably the biggest news we’re about to drop for a long time, so that’s exciting.”
