*BRAND NEW SINGLE for Christmas*

In November 21, 2023 Crash World released their first ever Christmas song, “Ol' Christmas Mission”.

"Ol' Christmas Mission" plays into our collective desire to make Christmas "special". These feelings are often based on our early, youthful Christmas experiences. Throughout life the pressure to make Christmas "wonderful" can be a lot to manage. So the lyrics slide through the years and touch on different times of life. The ol' Christmas mission of the title is about bringing something truly special back to the season and creating a warm, safe welcoming place for one and all.
A song of hope, of realizing dreams and being reunited with loved ones at Christmas.

Happy Holidays from Crash World!

 NEW SINGLE & VIDEO 

This is our latest single, "Cup Of Coffee".

The song is about our human connection, the face-to-face connection and how beautiful it can be. Nobody said it was easy, but it is so important for us all. 
And coffee is a very common age-old component of connecting. A common ground for humanity. 
It can be one of the binding elements in a relationship..."Remember, we met over coffee?" or "Remember we used to meet at the little coffee shop on the corner?" 

"Cup Of Coffee" is uplifting, optimistic, and in this chaotic world and life, as we all lean on each other, it’s a reminder that we're all in this together. 
So, for every relationship that’s been started, ended or mended over coffee...this one's for you!

The wonderful video produced by Marts Productions @martsproductionsvancouver is out on YouTube! Have a look!

"Crash World exists in the yellow glow of Edison bulbs, leather couches and dark hardwood." - Pitch Perfect (Chicago)

Crash World takes up residence between 60's Blvd & 70's Ave and sends a love letter to our modern world.
A reflective, nostalgic message in a bottle for music lovers!

Vancouver’s truly dynamic duo Crash World are a love letter to the past and an ode to tomorrow. A sonic tapestry of two voices and six strings by the accomplished and harmonious Glen MacLeod and Graham MacDonald. Their distinctive sound blends the poetic whimsy of the 60's and the alluring boldness of the 70’s with a refreshing contemporary flare. Crash World sends a nostalgic message in a bottle to music lovers. 
The band was built on an affinity for infusing ragged beauty into songwriting and a stripped-down musicality. 

They are inspired by the origins of music in its most delicate state. In the past, both Glen and Graham were primarily involved in bands with massive repertoires that crossed diverse genres. The two previously played together in the larger-than-life rock band Warjunk that began in the late 90’s and generated innovative music for twelve years. After the disbandment of Warjunk, Glen studied jazz theory for three years and developed a deep appreciation for acoustic music. In 2014, Glen and Graham fatefully reconnected at a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds concert, both there to witness an artist who remains an immense inspiration for them. It was clear they shared a mutual interest in the art of rock and roll music through the unplugged prism. The two spent a year playing music and rehearsing tracks before the live debut of Crash World in September 2015. They have since performed at an array of Vancouver’s most treasured venues, connecting with audiences through the power of song. 

In 2022, Crash World released, "So The Story Goes" an immersive full-length debut album which showcases their multifaceted talent. Their work is wildly sincere, endlessly captivating and refreshingly accessible to all. Progressive Canadiana is one way to describe Crash World as they cover a lot of musical ground both in terms of songwriting and arrangements. 
"So The Story Goes" has received stellar reviews from all around the world and Spotify streams are closing in on 340K. 

In April of 2023 Crash World released the brand new stand-alone single and video, "Cup Of Coffee".
The song is about our human connection, the face-to-face connection and how beautiful it can be. Nobody said it was easy, but it is so important for us all. 
And coffee is a very common age-old component of connecting. A common ground for humanity. 
It can be one of the binding elements in a relationship..."Remember, we met over coffee?" or "Remember we used to meet at the little coffee shop on the corner?" 

"Cup Of Coffee" is uplifting, optimistic, and in this chaotic world and life, as we all lean on each other, it’s a reminder that we're all in this together. 
So, for every relationship that’s been started, ended or mended over coffee...this one's for you.

In November of 2023 Crash World released their first ever Christmas song, “Ol' Christmas Mission”.

The North, West, South, East Remixes Project for 2024!
In the Spring of 2023, we reached out to several Hip-Hop artists in the US, regarding the idea of collaborating on 2 remixes from our album, "So The Story Goes". The idea was enthusiastically received as we were already fans of each others work.

Here's how the project came to life:
During an Instagram conversation between Glen and Tha IronMantis, an established Rap artist from San Francisco with a huge catalogue of releases of the highest caliber, in which they were extolling their mutual love of each others work, Glen asked if he would have any interest in working on a remix of “Third Time’s The Charm”. Tha IronMantis was intrigued and excited by the idea and the project was born.

Empowered by the enthusiasm from the West Coast, Glen then reached out the East Coast. Glen met Trav Da Poet, a Hip-Hop, Spoken-Word, Rap artist from NYC on a Ten10 podcast in 2022, and immediately fell in love with his extraordinary talent and deeply socially conscious work. Like his West Coast counterpart, Trav Da Poet is truly an artist of the highest order. Glen presented his idea for a possible collaboration on “Before & After” (also from “So The Story Goes”) and the creative blood began pumping.

Through a collaborative collective called Slaps Family, Tha IronMantis connected with Justin JPaul Miller, from Arlington, TX, the co-owner of Lava Beat Productions whose mantra is “making dope beats with arrangements that will tell an amazing story!” and the beats he built brought a truly special touch to the collaboration.
The final member of the team was Brutha Maintain, a brilliant San Francisco Rap artist and colleague of Tha IronMantis, the two having collaborated on several earlier works together.

So we all got down to work, and the results are truly beautiful, extremely unique and incredibly special. Inspired by each other and love of the collaborative process, Crash World and all of these amazing artists have crossed genres and borders to bring something socially relevant and deeply inspiring to fruition.

Welcome to The North, West, South, East Remixes! 
Two tracks that have been reinvented and through the collaborative process have achieved something truly special. 
Standing on the shoulders of giants such as Nas, OutKast, Gil Scott-Heron, De La Soul & Damian Marley we are incredibly proud of this project, and now it’s time for you to hear it for yourselves…

One love, 
Crash World (NORTH – Vancouver, BC)
Tha IronMantis (WEST – San Francisco, CA)
Brutha Maintain (WEST – San Francisco, CA)
Justin JPaul Miller (SOUTH - Arlington, TX)
Trav Da Poet (EAST – New York City, NY)

The first single, "Third Time's The Charm" [Remix] (feat. Tha IronMantis, Brutha Maintain & Justin JPaul Miller) was released on February 2, 2024 and will be followed by "Before & After" [Remix] (feat. Trav Da Poet, Tha IronMantis & Justin JPaul Miller) on March 1, 2024.

We can't wait for you to hear this beautiful work.
