Crumbs have revealed a second track from their forthcoming debut album Mind Yr Manners. ‘Weasels Can Wait’ “is a party song about being the one crying at the party,” explain the band. “It was filmed in our hometown of Leeds by Robin Deione. The video skips between Super-8 home video-style footage of us walking Zelda the chihuahua through Batcliffe Woods of a summer evening, and performing the song in front of vivid fruit salad-coloured visuals. It also features an inexplicably long worm.”
Mind Yr Manners is set for release July 28 and it’s a record that deals a lot with the art of coping with not coping. Crumbs’ unique sound comprises a bumper post-punk/pop party bag mix of sprightly basslines, super-danceable cowbell-tinged rhythms, fizzing guitars and effervescent interchanging vocal lines. Mind Yr Manners was recorded with MJ at Suburban Home.
Since forming in 2015 Crumbs have kept themselves busy releasing music with Tuff Enuff, Swirly and Bowl Cut Records, recording a live session for Marc Riley on 6 Music, playing gigs all over the shop and writing and recording their debut album. Crumbs are: Ruth Gilmore (vocals), Jamie Wilson (bass/vocals), Gem Prout (drums) and Stuart Alexander (guitar). They are particularly fond of pets and puns.
