The Drawdler is the project of Newcastle based singer-songwriter and musician John Edgar. He has announced the release of a new EP called Sign of Growth which will be out later this month via Akira Records. “Crocodile” is a new excerpt which shows the evocative vibes and the well-built melodies. “The lyrics to Crocodile are based on a dream. A game of chess with a crocodile that develops into a terrifying chase with murderous intentions,” says Edgar.
“Probably my subconsciousness’s reaction to the rise of fascism and the anxiety inducing polarisation of the socio-political landscape. The options presented in the lyrics are to face the fears head on and fight, or to somehow retreat into the solar system – dancing with the moon and sleeping on Saturn’s rings.”
