Heron and Crane release single “Drat”, prepare for August release


Brian Wilson’s haunted vocals articulated the solace and insanity that can fester inside one’s bedroom on The Beach Boys classic “In My Room.”

Heron and Crane, a Bowling Green, Ky alternative three-piece, echo a similar sentiment on their evocative, introspective new single “Drat”.

“Blank for days stuck inside my room with nothing to do / Are you surprised the static grows? A channel buzzing with snow,” Lead singer/guitarist Collin Hancock howls on the slow-burning track.

“Drat” proves to be somewhat anthemic in regards to the growing pains of small-town life.

“Everything I do feels so lame / Like I’m on cocaine stuck inside my room with nothing to do.”

Check out “Drat” (here: http://heronandcrane.bandcamp.com/releases ) and request it on Western Kentucky 91.7. by calling 270.681.7917.

Hancock on the band’s formation and sound: “We formed in 2014. The band consists of David Stites (Bass), Riley Finwood (Drums), and of course me (Guitar/Vocals). As far as our sound, we draw on The White Stripes, The Smiths, Alabama Shakes and Weezer. When it comes to lyricists, it doesn’t get much better than Mos Def, Conor Oberst and Robin Pecknold. And though our band doesn’t sound anything like Mos Def, Bright Eyes, or The Fleet Foxes, I’m definitely aiming for that sort of craftsmanship.”
Hancock said Heron and Crane’s debut will drop August 14 with in-store performance at Mellow Matt’s Music & More in Bowling Green.
 “This album works more as a sampler of what we have to offer,” Hancock said.  “There’s blues, rock and even a little folky murder ballad coming from some skiffle influence. We had a great recording experience with Scott Gardener, who did excellent work in producing this album. Getting in the studio helped us find our footing, and the next batch of songs promises to be representative of our growth and thematically centered.”
