White Denim are releasing a 12” on July 23rd, and the new cut from it is Crystal Bullets. Not to put any ideas into your head, but it’s a perfect soundtrack for a road trip through desert: smooth and hot. Although we don’t have any desert here in Britain, so boo.
The song has a story, which the band explained: “The music for ‘Crystal Bullets’ was inspired by the groove of the great Bernard Purdie and the signature chopped and screwed (slowed and throwed) production techniques of Houston, Texas’ Robert Davis Jr., better known as DJ Screw.”
There’s more “The lyric for ‘Crystal Bullets’ was written by our longtime friend and collaborator Andy Pickett. In the late 90s, Andy and I spent many hours cruising around Ft. Worth in a cloud, listening to Curtis Mayfield, Arthur Lee, Daft Punk and Big Maybelle… Our years of friendship combined with our deep reverence for the masters and a willingness to try to measure up with our own work has led to another fresh piece of White Denim music that we couldn’t be more thrilled to share.”
