Review: Crowns – Crowns (Self Titled EP)

Hit The Floor have reviewed Crowns self titled E.P. See what we thought of it here…

Band: Crowns
Album: Crowns (Self Titled EP)
Release Date: 05/03/12

Cornwall has it’s traditions; it’s pasties, it’s folk music, little fishing villages and now fish punk. “What is fish punk?” you ask, well it’s a genre used to describe the counties up and coming band, Crowns. Formed a little over 18 months ago, the band have already had the pleasure of supporting punk rockers The King Blues.

Mixing traditional Cornish folk music with modern day punk rock, their EP ‘Crowns’ entertains like nothing that’s been performed before. Each track takes influence from old sea shanties spliced with a crisp, punk rock edge. A great example of this is ‘Full Swing’, it’s jaunty rhythms and feel good aura will have you craving for a beer at the least. ‘She Swears Like a Sailor’ is another fantastic and playful track for all the ladies in the room. All six tracks flow perfectly and if you can keep up with front man Bill Jefferson, then feel free to sing along.

For fans of Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys, Crowns will surely be an essential buy for your album collection. Cornwall is on the music map now and we expect big things from the four piece.

Make sure you catch them on tour with Sharks in March.
