Crashland, Pennan Brae’s latest single, is able to keep a high energy and quick tempo. The song builds upon the album-rock of late Who and The Kinks while interspersing hints of 1990s alternative. Brae’s charismatic vocals sit upon the top of sizzling guitar work and splashy drums. The brief interlude which hits listeners at around the three-minute mark looks back a bit to Apple Records acts while whipping the guitar / drum dynamic into an introspective and intense direction. Hitting the listeners one last time with the single’s hooky chorus, Brae puts an emphatic ending to what may just be his best single yet.
