Birdtapes will be releasing a split seven-inch between Boy Crush and Starry Cat in a week and the creepy, silly tone of Boy Crush's “Creep” is appropriate for the impending Halloween holiday. Talking about dead girls and how they can't cry is like a story from our Goosebumps past and though it is tongue-in-cheek, there's nothing like hearing that good pop beat with some off-kilter lyrics. We had almost forgotten that pop music could be so funny.
The release is out on October 29 through Birdtapes. Both Starry Cat and Boy Crush will play a show on Thursday at Silent Barn in celebration of Halloween, your favorite holiday. Details are below.
