BREAKFAST MUFF Share Video for ‘Crocodile’

breakfast-muffScotland’s Breakfast Muff follow up their acclaimed 2017 album Eurgh! with the Crocodile EP. Serrated, fused with pop hooks and exploding with righteous anger, the Crocodile EP is an adrenaline-fuelled joyride.

A thrillingly uncompromising DIY pop trio, consisting of Eilidh McMillan (Rapid Tan, Jealous Girlfriend), Simone Wilson (Hairband, Mary Column) and Cal Donnelly (Spinning Coin, Kaputt, Rapid Tan), the band stand out not only for the music they make but how they make it. Without hierarchies, challenging each other to keep changing instruments and vocal duties from song to song, they are able to explore different genres and themes (feminism, punk, DIY music, garage, pop) while keeping a core essence.

In true Breakfast Muff style, Crocodile EP was recorded in one day with Eurgh! producer Rick Webster (High Pony Studio) with mixing duties handled once again by Hookworms’ MJ (Suburban Studio).

You’re Not Written in My Stars” is as close as they come to a dancefloor beat which builds into a defiant sing-along about breaking free from those who keep you down. Lead single “Crocodile” is about someone, “guilting you and projecting their problems onto things you are doing!” and sets the pace and tone with stomping guitar, bass and drums; the perfect counterpoint to Simone’s enigmatic, almost-whispers of ‘black eyelash on the bathroom tile’. “Used” slows the pace briefly allowing you to lose yourself in a story of pain, hurt and coming out the other side. “Patient” oozes a bass and guitar melody that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Fugazi or Sonic Youth record.

It’s an inspiring message to not give in and live your life the way you want to live it. In our society today people are demanding change, telling truth to power, holding people accountable and Breakfast Muff are providing the soundtrack. As the band themselves state; “The EP is about growing, healing, and moving on.”
