Clappy 'n' Creepy Kids On A Crime Spree

Although Kids On A Crime Spree's catchy "Creep The Creeps" has been a staple of the group's live set for a while now, it's finally being released on vinyl by Slumberland. As you might expect from Mario Hernandez, it's a typically Phil Spector-inspired powerpop romp cleverly employing hyper-handclaps and a pounding beat courtesy of drummer Becky Barron to offset the song's dark undercurrent. The 7" single release on April 9 will be accompanied by a suitably unsettling video by Stagnant Cult. "New Ex-Boyfriend" on the flip, which apparently has nothing at all to do with Taylor Swift, adds some minor-key drama and echoed surf guitar leads to the mix.
