Crows release new single “Wednesday’s Child”

Crows Wednesday’s Child single cover
Ahead of their already acclaimed (4 stars at both Mojo & DIY so far) debut record landing March 22nd, Crows today release “Wednesday’s Child”, the second single from that album.

Another intense and melodic jolt to the senses from the group, front man James Cox says of the track:
“This is one of the songs that got me into a really strange head space to write. When writing; I quite often go heavily into research worm-holes - going really deep into subjects I’m curious about until it’s so uncomfortable I’ll have to shelve it for a while. "Wednesday’s Child" is fundamentally about our communication with others, focusing on misunderstandings - not only between loved ones but also how we treat strangers. While I was in this weird research hole I became really obsessed with the idea of mass hysteria - especially in Puritan colonial America and the witch-hunts. Shifting blame onto someone else because you are too afraid to take responsibility is an age-old phenomenon that we will never learn from. I feel that happens today with our society and especially with how the press can demonise the innocent to protect the real evil. People are so easily convinced to attack the defenseless and defend the powerful”.
