Liverpool-based four-piece CRAWLERS today share their stunning new single ‘F*ck Me (I Didn’t Know How To Say)’. The single, the band’s second release on Polydor Records, is a compelling concoction of big, grungy riffs which continues to mix the personal with the issues that matter to many in our world. ‘F*ck Me’ sees lead singer Holly Minto pivoting the lens inwards as she examines her relationship with her own body. It’s yet another example of the bold, probing songwriting that makes CRAWLERS such an important new band and a powerful force to be reckoned with.
“I know I used to be in love,” she whispers on the song. “The kisses that led to sex were close enough.”
Holly elaborates, “F*ck Me (I didn’t know how to say)”’ is a song very personal to us as a band. The song covers two ideas behind sex. First the trauma and disgust after sexual assault, and then the idea of how at the time of writing it I haven’t felt loved and only used for my body and for sex rather than the love I really wanted at the time.”
“There’s a song that goes ‘You kiss me just to kiss me’ and I was like, ‘Damn, I’ve never been kissed just to be kissed’,” she explains. “I just sat there and had a little moment about it and was like, ‘Have I just been letting people use me so I can feel loved?’”
