TWO CROWN KING EP – Review


London, Ontario’s Two Crown King is back with a new EP. This band does a fantastic job of defying convention and classification. Their sound is a wonderful mix of rock, funk, hip-hop, jazz and several other influences. The EP has only been out for a few days, and the boys are having a hard time keeping it in stores. Thankfully it’s also on iTunes

It makes me really happy that this EP came out, and is awesome. I had the opportunity to interview both singers of the band in the fall, and they were really easy going, down to earth and humble cats, who put on a great show! Their previous works has been the brainchild of Adam Dick and Sean Goodchild, but on this release, it is a collaberative effort of the entire 6 piece. The keys, the bass, the guitar, the rhymes – I just can’t enough good things about this record.

Moving on to the record, Track 1 is the lead single We Get Down. It’s a high tempo, high energy jam that is as infectious as it is dancable. Please Believe Me features Odario Williams from Grand Analog (which is also a fantastic band, for those of you unaware) and totally works for their vibe.

Never Trust The Weatherman has a very clear message, with lots of subtle undertones (and really hits home for radio people) You and I is a slower, funkier jam. Automatic has more of the back-and-forth between the vocalists that longtime fans have come to expect, and Forever, Whatever, Goodbye is a great mid-tempo jam that sends the record off on a great note. “If grace is the blessing, I’ve lost the message, god must be a sadist”

In conclusion, I ask why have you not bought this yet?
