WY Premiere: The Crowleys Listen to the psych-surf sounds of “L.A Sunset”

what youth recommends the crowleys la sunset

The Crowleys, a four-piece from Hamilton, Ontario, sound like they’ve been riding waves and hitting the sun scorched shores of California all their lives. These dudes have been jamming since high school, where they won fourth runner up at their talent show and finessed their “psych-rock” sound “to get people down.” And boy do we love getting down. Plus, when The Crowleys aren’t performing or nailing talent shows, they’re out adventuring, “looking for Old Milwaukee Ice sponsorships, and writing love songs.” Check out their new single, “L.A Sunset”, off their forthcoming debut EP, and keep a close eye on these guys. I know I will. -Maya Eslami

L.A. Sunset is the first song we figured out as a band that was primarily written by Stuart, our drummer, and it is kind of an oldie that we finally got around to recording. It is named after a pair of sunglasses bought from Giant Tiger, and although it doesn’t directly relate to the lyrics, we believed it fit the soundscape well. We are releasing this as our first single because we believed it encapsulated all of our influences and styles. The intro is a fresher sound for us- more relaxed and poppy- that local listeners may be surprised to hear. The body of the song is our more typical psych-surf style to get new listeners familiar with our sound. While the ending is a drawn-out, heavy psychedelic climax to keep people wanting more.
