Published Aug 11, 2016Oshawa, ON's Crown Lands are a pair of self-described "long-haired, white-wardrobed hippie types" making music that sounds much bigger than just a two-man operation, and Exclaim! is giving you an early listen to their latest EP Mantra.
Kevin Comeau and Cody Bowles aim to bring classic psych-rock into the modern musical landscape on their upcoming offering, serving up an intoxicating blend of crunchy blues-rock riffs and howling vocals.
Mantra hits hard right from opening track "Being Right," keeping the scorching classic rock vibes strong throughout and delivering a final knockout blow with the blistering guitars, pummelling drums and dramatic manmade growls of closer "Scott Fitzgerald."
Let Crown Lands' updated take on the rock'n'roll of yore wash over you by giving Mantra a stream before the EP is officially released on August 19. Scroll past the duo's upcoming tour dates and hit play to hear it right now.
