Estrangers are back with a new single, streaming now at PopMatters! Take 'Croc Rock' for a spin here.

Matt Fiander writes about the track: "North Carolina’s Estrangers’ last record was a bittersweet sunburst of power pop released back in 2013... Now, the band is prepping their sophomore record, and the first single from that release is “Croc Rock”... The song isn’t afraid to murk up and complicate the band’s shimmering pop sensibilities, to leave a bit of coal dust on the diamond. Jangling guitars clash nicely with airy keys over a lean rhythm section that gives the song a pulse while giving its parts space to echo outward... There’s a lucid-dreamy feel to the track, as if it’s stuck somewhere between the physical and ethereal, between the grit of the earth and some rare shine mined from it. And if the textures of the song weren’t sweet enough, the chorus is stick-in-your-ear catchy and the song bursts with infectious energy."
