Following on from the release of their much-loved 'Episode 3' EP at the start of the year, White Denim have now returned to share a brand new single.
The new track 'Crystal Bullets' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Jeremy Cohen, and will feature on a new 12" release alongside the cut 'King Tears', which is out on the 23rd July via their own English Mallard label.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's James Petralli said, "The music for 'Crystal Bullets' was inspired by the groove of the great Bernard Purdie and the signature chopped and screwed (slowed and throwed) production techniques of Houston, Texas’ Robert Davis Jr., better known as DJ Screw. The lyrics for 'Crystal Bullets' were written by our longtime friend and collaborator Andy Pickett. In the late nineties Andy and I spent many hours cruising around Ft. Worth in a cloud, listening to Curtis Mayfield, Arthur Lee, Daft Punk, and Big Maybelle. Our years of friendship combined with our deep reverence for the masters and a willingness to try to measure up with our own work has led to another fresh piece of White Denim music that we couldn’t be more thrilled to share."
