LOS ANGELES, CA (December 2, 2022) – Starcrawler is trading in their signature raucous riffs for twangy tones on
the new acoustic release of their hit single, “Stranded” LISTEN HERE. Steel guitars and lonesome vocals transform
the track into an entirely different experience that finds the LA-based rockers sounding more Music City than City of
“We wanted to put out an acoustic version of ‘Stranded’ because we liked playing around with the song and taking
something that’s upbeat and stripping it down,” frontwoman Arrow de Wilde explains. “On tour, we got to play some of
our tunes acoustically, and there was something so cool and intimate about it. We recorded a couple other songs off
our new album in a stripped-down setting, too, and we’re hoping to put out an EP of them next year.”
Alongside guitarist Henri Cash with brother Bill Cash on pedal steel/guitar, drummer Seth Carolina, and bassist Tim
Franco, de Wilde and Starcrawler have fully leaned into their own epic vision of a contemporary Hollywood Babylon.
Morphing into a modern-day take on LA legends X, with a sprinkle of The Go-Go’s, a smattering of The Distillers, and
some Rolling Stones sleaze thrown in for good measure, the outfit released their major label debut, She Said, via Big
Machine/John Varvatos records in September LISTEN HERE. The record received praise from SPIN, NME, i-D, and
Consequence of Sound, among others.
In addition to their own sonic evolution, other new ventures have fed into the ever-evolving Starcrawler, including
collaborations with rock legends like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ guitarist Mike Campbell, as well as the late,
great Taylor Hawkins and Perry Farrell. You might have even spotted Arrow’s arresting cameos in music videos for
Father John Misty and Florence and the Machine. And after a year of performing on stages around the world with
the likes of My Chemical Romance, Jack White, The Smile, and Nick Cave, only time will tell what direction they’ll
evolve in next.
