Album Of The Week: Crash Adams, Crashing Into Your Living Room Vol. 1,

Toronto pop duo Crash Adams made a splash at the Junos in Halifax on the weekend, presenting the award for TikTok Fan Choice alongside their own nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year. That was good timing, as their debut EP, Crashing Into Your Living Room Vol. 1, was released on Friday, via Warner Canada. It has been keenly anticipated by industry figures, as earlier Crash Adams tracks have blown up internationally and earned them status as one of TikTok Canada’s most popular artists of 2023. The EP shows plenty of range, from the piano-based ballad “Good & Bad” through to the high-energy “Right Foot First.” Breakthrough hit "Give Me a Kiss" is also included. A debut show in Los Angeles is set for Venice West on April 4. Tickets here.
