MUSIC NEWS: Crown Lands Release ‘Wayward Flyers Volume 1’ Acoustic EP
Canadian duo Crown Lands have released their Wayward Flyers Volume 1 acoustic EP. The release features four stripped back original tracks alongside a cover of Neil Young’s Birds and was produced by Justin Meli.
“Wayward Flyers is an arrangement of acoustic aural vistas that meander from our usual high-octane rock display and into the dark forest. Within this body of work, we’ve taken some interesting decisions to explore parts of our own musicality that we haven’t yet fed under the umbrella of Crown Lands” explains drummer/vocalist Cody Bowles.
“This was an important record for us. We took the chance to apply a lot of the things we had learned from a big year – getting signed, writing and recording new records, touring the US. We tracked most of the guitar and vocals live off the floor to capture how we really perform and bounce off each other.” guitarist Kevin Comeau adds.
Alongside the release of the EP, the band have unveiled a performance video for spooky track The Witching Hour. Shot in Uxbridge, Ontario this is the first in a series of performance videos from the band, with Birds and Roving On to follow later this month.
Crown Lands have had European support dates with Larkin Poe and a homecoming headline show in Toronto put on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned for further details of rescheduled dates.
