Sydney’s Northern Beaches garage / rock three piece Crocodylus’ DIY ethos has garnered them fervent fans around the globe from high-octane house gigs on their home turf to touring Europe with The Chats, and selling out headline shows all around Australia, as well making the trio a go-to for boutique festivals in their home country. They’ve toured regional Australia with Skegss, nationally with The Chats, tri-headlining with A. Swayze & The Ghosts and Voiid, as well as popping up for hometown shows supporting the likes of Ocean Alley, Dune Rats, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Hockey Dad, The Jungle Giants and more. Throw in some festival appearances across the country at Panama, NYE on The Hill, Bad Friday, Yours & Owls and Sounds of the Suburbs and a couple of sold out headline dates along the East Coast for good measure, and it’s no surprise these three high school friends, Josh Williams (bass/vocals), Stephen Sacco (guitar/vocals) and Mikel Salvador (drums/vocals), have managed to carve out a name for themselves.


With a string of successful EP’s and 7” releases including 2018’s ‘My Baby’ (now over 2 million streams) and 2019’s 8 track EP ‘Enjoy’, which featured engineering and production from Owen Penglis (Royal Headache, Miss Destiny, The Grates) and mixing from Wade Keigran (Polish Club, The Hard-Ons, Wolf & Cub) and marked a huge step up in sound for the band, with a smorgasbord of sounds ranging from garage, psych, 60’s rock and contemporary surf, delivered with a blast of buzzsaw guitars, blistering vocals and thunderous drum lines. 2020 saw the band release ‘Social Climber’. Produced and engineered once again by Owen Penglis, and mixed by Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezabels, Hard-Ons), ‘Social Climber’ showed Crocodylus at their most dynamic.


Leading into the ‘Muscle Memory’ sessions, Crocodylus have been up and down the East Coast a couple of times with sold out shows along the way.


It’s been a hell of a journey for the Crocs since forming as a high school band in 2015, and yet with every new year comes another opportunity to double-down on previous efforts, to further develop their sound, and to deliver the best music and best performances to their loyal fans that they possibly can. If you’re not on board yet, it’s never too late. We’ve saved you a seat.
