Insomnia

by Pet Crow

We're Pet Crow & this track is VERY self-explanatory - It's quick, fuzzy, garage-punk, with a hint of frustration. If you don't know what the song is about, we want to know your secrets! This is the 2nd single from our 2nd LP 'Take The Edge Off'. We also made a daft DIY video on YouTube you can check out.
