Legendary Sydney ska-punk band, Crash and the Crapenters have released two new tracks.
‘Outbreak of Human Kindness’ is classic, rollicking ska with an irresistible beat that is going to be a hit in the mosh pit. Despite the upbeat nature of the song it comes with a poignant message – lead singer Chris Carpenter exhorting listeners to start caring for one another. According to him, love and kindness should be as infectious as Covid!
The track is accompanied by an amazing video, featuring animations of the band in action.
The other new release, ‘Ride It Out’ is a classic reggae track, chilled and laidback. The song, written by David Lewis is a languid paean to relaxation and not taking life too seriously. A message that is very welcome at this time with so much turmoil in the world.
This is the first batch of new music that Crash and the Crapenters have released since their album in 2020. The new tracks show that Crash and the boys have evolved their sound somewhat during the last two years. The singles are from the band’s ‘Great Singles Bonanza’ series, which documented how Covid affected them.
Crash and the Crapenters are awesome live catch them in Sydney at Frankie’s Pizza on 29th May.
