“Hater’s songs epitomize jangling grace as Caroline Landahl coos with maximum approachability.” NPR

“Their unique take on rock music feels familiar and lived-in, taking bits from indie-pop, post-punk and classic rock.” Stereogum

“Gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating.” Gorilla Vs Bear 


Slinking through South London’s lo-fi sanctities, today Krush Puppies release slacker serenade ‘PetalHead’. Their debut release, ‘PetalHead’ is 90s-tinged in its delivery and explosive in its dirty, grunge-ritten buildup.

‘Petalhead’ is for my twin sister”, Jenny explains. “She was feeling a long stretch of joylessness, as we both do sometimes - she lives in Mexico but I could feel her lack of spirit and wanted to send her a positive charm of some kind to connect us because I couldn't be with her.”

The lo-fi playground video for ‘Petalhead’ was filmed and edited by Krush Puppies bassist Alexa and her boyfriend Stephen. Mimicking the song’s foundations, the video also joins two places - a green screen day dream in London combined with surreal footage from a recent trip to America.

Meeting in South London, Jenny (lead vocals/guitar), Alexa (bass) and Jess (guitar) started the band on a fuck-it whim. Shortly after, Rebecca was recruited to provide righteous harmonies whilst Sam took his place on the drum kit. Practising in the studio Mellah built in Peckham and sharing a space with Alaskalaska, the band are already gaining a live reputation supporting the likes of Snail Mail.

In addition to this, Krush Puppies are releasing a 7” vinyl later this month with ‘PetalHead’ and b-side ‘Passata’.
