“Alcock-White’s songs are as sinuous as the invertebrate worms of his moniker; super-cool but not overly slick, self-assured without coming across as a cocky bastard.”
- Quick Before it Melts


“...bouncy pop-rock, with plenty of thumping pianos and quirky vocal harmonies. There's a faint undercurrent of ska to the nerd-rocking “Daytime Friend”, which evokes Elvis Costello and gives plenty of reasons to expect great things from Henry and the Nightcrawlers in the future.”

- The Georgia Straight


“Throughout the album comes an undercurrent of assured energy from a songwriter who both wants to engage the listener whilst purely telling his own story as he feels it...a fusion and journey of Henry’s influences that has all the funk, soul and melody with a little west coast cool one would expect when noting his vast and broad luminaries.” - BeatRoute Magazine


“... You have to appreciate Henry and the Nightcrawlers’ mildly vulgar, lovesick musings and take them with both a grin and chagrin. 100 Blows’ pop-laced stylistic twists conjure Elvis Costello, the Kinks and the lounge side of early punk rock, delivered unpolished and raw.”

- Vancouver Sun


“…Henry and the Nightcrawlers upcoming album 100 Blows is something everyone should be waiting for. It’s like someone asked Elvis Costello to write the soundtrack to a Wes Anderson movie.”

- Chipped Hip


“Henry and the Nightcrawlers, made up of members of Bend Sinister, The Zolas, and Said The Whale, create a danceable sound a bit something like indie pop rock often reminiscent of Jason Collett, but not really all that similar. Some really catchy songs, I am looking forward to the full length which may be out this spring…”
- 3AM Revelations


“…Henry Alcock-White is the very laid back and a busy frontman of Henry and the Nightcrawlers while also playing in two other big Vancouver bands at the heart of the cities indie scene, Bend Sinister, and The Zolas…”
- Actively Independent Music

Bio

On the cover of Henry and the Nightcrawlers debut album, 100 Blows, is the image of a girl. She's just stepped out of the shower and through the lens of Henry Alcock White's camera, we see her from behind as she ties up her hair. The woman is the foundation for each of the album's nine songs.

The songs chronicle the turbulent relationship between Henry and the woman on the cover. Beginning early on with discovery, and then moving through to wonderment and pain, it's a story about finding, losing, and again finding love.

100 Blows marks Henry Alcock-White's first solo effort. He's been a member of groups such as Bend Sinister (2009 $50,000 winner of 100.5 fm's Peak Performance Project) as well as 604/Light Organ recording artists, The Zolas.

Henry and the Nightcrawlers began in the wet and muddy back roads of the Pacific Northwest . Now based in the city, Vancouver , The Nightcrawlers read like an all-star line-up of the burgeoning west-coast indie music scene. Members from BC acts We are the City, The Zolas and Said the Whale complete the band's lineup. Henry and his bandmates have shared the stage with the likes of Metric, The Stills, Hot Hot Heat, Mother Mother, Charlie Winston and more.

100 Blows is a result of Alcock-White's youthful forays in rhythm and blues combined with his more recent endeavors in indie rock. Henry and the Nightcrawlers unparalleled line-up couple with Alcock-White's embarrassingly sincere brand of songwriting to create the latest force in the formidable west coast indie scene.
