Today Krush Puppies shares new single ‘Throw Me On The Fire’, taken from debut EP Love Kills The Demons that’s out May 6th via Holm Front Records. 

‘Throw Me On The Fire’ is about absolution. It’s about people who say sorry too much without really meaning it within the culture of instant gratification and the need for absolution from our sins without the growth or self awareness that should come along with it.

Vocalist and guitarist Jenny says on the single:

“The song kind of acts as a confessional booth, it asks you to confide your darkest secrets within it, but questions the cost. The chant at the end urges you to face your demons instead of putting them onto someone else’s shoulders.”

Meeting in the queue for Pets at Home on the Old Kent Road, Alexa Daly, Jenny Wells and Jess McGill, three pet owners with a shared taste for experimental post-punk, started playing about with the instruments they had lying around. Through a serendipitous phone call a couple of years later, drummer Heather Britton joined the band with a multi-instrumentalist gift, which glued the four together.

Love Kills The Demons is half and half songs they’ve been playing live and new ideas. Usually someone comes into the studio with the beginnings of something, whether it’s a melody line, a guitar tone or some words, then they add layers and chop around the format until it makes sense and feels right, without worrying about traditional formatting.

The band’s writing is more collaborative than it’s been before, with melodies and crescendos fused alongside each other’s thoughts and ideas without ego. That’s what their debut EP is about; supporting, encouraging, and celebrating those you care about. 

It’ll include ‘Throw Me On The Fire’, and previous single ‘Why (video here), and title track ‘Love Kills The Demons’ (video here).

Krush Puppies are also set for an EP release show at London’s Moth Club on 15th June. Tickets on-sale HERE.

More information on Krush Puppies:

The EP Love Kills The Demons, is about letting go of the bad to make room for the good. It mirrors their heavier live atmosphere, but the recording allowed them to add layers of ethereal vocal harmony and fuzz at the same time, which is often hard to control on stage.

Each song is an interpretation of transcendence. ‘Throw Me On The Fire’ alludes to the drain of ignorance; when you’re scapegoated, but absorb it instead of falling.

Whether that’s through someone you know who takes and takes, or male sound engineers blaming an all female band when they can’t get the levels right. ‘Why’ is about letting go and forgiveness, signified musically with a wall of sound in the latter half, where ‘Everybody wants to be a cowboy’ represents the spiky side of it all, and the title track embraces support.

On the signing, Henry Young of Holm Front Records and Sports Team said:

“From the moment we hit play on Love Kills The Demons, it was clear this wasn’t your typical demo submission. Morricone-esque flute meets a wall of fuzz-laden guitar across four tracks unlike anything else in the game right now. Very excited here at Holm Front to be releasing the EP – a major step-up in recorded output from a band already turning heads for their live show in the capital.”
