Ants

Album: Single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Starcrawler is a Los Angeles rock band who was formed in 2016 when lead vocalist Arrow de Wilde first met guitarist Henri Cash at their Echo Park high school. Shortly afterwards they added the rhythm section of drummer Austin Smith and bassist Tim Franco. "Ants" is their debut single.
  • Arrow De Wilde told Uncut that Henri Cash wrote Ants "about an infestation." She added: "But it was joke until he came up with the slow breakdown part, and I was like, 'Now it's a song.'"
  • The song means a number of different things to De Wide. She explained: "To me, the ants can be people conforming, or the crowd at our shows, my enemy but also my love. I go through different moods with my on-stage persona."
