Southern California rockers Crooked Teeth, signed to independent label, Rude Records, recently released their brand new record Pastel on Friday, May 11th. The EP features a brand new single, "Crawl" which showcases guest vocals from fellow Rude Records artist Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic, in the form of a heartfelt music video. The EP was produced by Matt Lang (Waterparks, Selfish Things, The Dangerous Summer) and cements their sound as expressive and emotive, whilst retaining a raw edge.
Crooked Teeth, comprised of Tyson Evans, Adam Miranda, and Adam Galindo, offer a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop punk, emo, and alternative sounds to engage the listener with thought-provoking lyrics. Creating music in earnest that's reminiscent of both punk rock greats Knuckle Puck and "Futures"-era Jimmy Eat World, it's no wonder Idobi Radio praised Pastel, promising that the EP "will have you so hooked all you'll wanna do is play these songs for everyone you know."

Lead vocalist and guitarist Tyson Evans had this to say about the brand new single:
"Crawl is about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship, be it platonic or intimate. It's about healing, learning and moving on from an experience that could have potentially altered your core in a negative sense.
Evans went on to share the story of how the collaboration with Bonnie from Stand Atlantic came to be:
I naturally discovered Stand Atlantic by way of a Spotify-curated playlist based on what I had been listening to. Bonnie displays a ton of emotion when she sings and that's something we really wanted to add to this song.
