CROWN LANDS – ” Crown Lands “

Pretty much every duo gets compared to the White Stripes anyway, but there’s certainly a dose of Jack White swagger to the fuzzy edges of opener Spit It Out and the hip-shake and hand-clap groove of Leadfoot.

Howlin’ Back gets even dirtier, but all this bluesy rock flex turns into something more expansive and grandiose, especially in the latter half of the album. The other as-yet unmentioned presence looming over Crown Lands is Led Zeppelin. Unlike other latter day devotees, however, they don’t evoke Zep in their full-on thunderous rock configuration, but rather the more intricate folk-tinged mysticism, which filters through on the textured Forest Song. You’re unlikely to catch vocalist and drummer Cody Bowles singing about squeezing his lemon ​‘til the juice runs down his leg. ​“I don’t need any more ​‘Hey Mamas’ in my life,” says Kevin, and these are songs with a little more depth than the primal urge fixation of most proto-hard rock. End Of The Road, for example, deals with the Highway Of Tears, an infamous stretch of road in North British Columbia where a lot of Indigenous women go missing with very little done about it. It gives an extra sense of intelligence and weight that sets this band apart.

We are so excited to release our debut Full Length Self-Titled LP! We made this in Nashville with Dave Cobb and it is an honest document of who we are as a band – tracked live off the floor in RCA Studio A. We did it right with no click or auto tune. We also just debuted the video for lead single Leadfoot. Thanks so much to everyone for their support,

“Spit It Out” and “Leadfoot”, from Crown Lands self-titled debut album out now.
