CrashCarBurn… A review of Gravity

Posted by radio On November - 5 - 2012

[By Chloe Smith]

CrashCarBurn hit the music market with just that. Their new album, Gravity, is described by Garth Barnes as “the most bi-polar album we’ve ever done”. Sticking to their well-known pop-punk sound of before, the album also shows a more heartfelt (and sometimes mellow) side to the band. Gravity is an evolution and maturation of CrashCarBurn without taking away from the rocking sound they were originally known and loved for.

Formed in London in 2006 before returning to South Africa in 2007, CrashCarBurn worked independently for many years. With a few international tours successfully under their belts, the band has continued to remain a local favourite. They recently signed to major international label EMI Music, where they say they “can’t wait to see where this new friendship will take [them]”.

Light, the first single off the new album, quickly became popular on alternative, rock and pop radio stations across the country, lending to their well-known punk-rock/pop-punk sound. With vocals from the locally renowned ChianoSky in Heartbeat Racing, the heart breaking tribute to their dear friend Kerran Yates in Get Up And Fly, the versatility of the album guarantees its good reception. Exploring time signatures, instrumentation and even adding in an orchestra or two, Gravity promises to be a local (and hopefully international) success.

The band can look forward to expanding their audience and their audience can look forward to forming a deeper connection with the band.
