In a landscape where “another indie electro-pop group” is “one of a million,” the sound fusion of the four-piece The Crash Native stands out as one in a million. Maybe that’s why their music video (Formerly as Taylored) has garnered over one million views.
Carefully crafted The Crash Native’s new Demo Tracks capture the eyes and ears of the masses, channeling a span of influences but striking hard with their own definitive identity.
Austin Taylor (vocals) echoes the alt-rock edge of Richard Patrick (Filter) and Jimmy Gnecco (Ours), but tastefully expand to full gang vocals as the melodies call for them ala 30 Seconds to Mars. His synth work plays upon percussive, ambient, and lead lines, emerging organically with their sound. While many bands in this hybrid-genre often bury their low end, Zane Decker (Bass/Vocals) and Noah Hyams (drums) are showcased as a strength, balancing out the diverse electronics with strategic bass lines and steady, creative drumming. Their sound is rounded out by energetic guitar work (Tim Holmes) that volleys between seamless turns and lead parts, reminiscent of U2 or present day Muse.
“Having worked on previous projects before The Crash Native has really helped us establish our sound” said Austin. Zane continues stating “The combination of our different approaches fits together, but also helps us stand out in a saturated market.”
