I love when two local acts come together and make magic and that’s exactly what happened when CrashCarBurn got into the studio with Justin Serrao. The two joined forces for their new single Winding Road which brings elements of rock and country together in a track that certainly stands out of the crowd.
Justin wrote the song over two years ago and it caught the ears of CrashCarBurn after he opened for them during their December tour. CrashCarBurn kept asking him to record it, and he agreed to record it if they did it with him. Justin wrote the song when he found himself disillusioned by the music industry and the many fake relationships he encountered on the way. I love how the two bands brought bits of their own sound into the song. Vocally, the two acts complement each other perfectly and the lyrical content is something I’m sure many acts have experienced. That honesty pours out of the song and brings a special element to it.
“We love the track and are so excited to share it with everyone. Not only do we think it’s a great song for existing CrashCarBurn and Serrao fans, but for us personally, it has all those fun tour memories attached to it,” Garth Barnes said of the track. “I think people will be able to hear that coming through when they listen to the track. Anyone will be able to relate to Winding Road. The song can be your own story. Especially the part when we sing about being ten years old. We all had dreams and ambitions when we were kids, how many of us managed to hold on to those?” Garth adds that “For me it’s often those songs that seem to write themselves, that fall into place so easily, that are the best. This is one of those special tracks.”
The video for the track is simple, but something that fits what the song is trying to say. “The track is literally about being in a band and the lyrics describe following a long road back to your roots. I think that’s why the straight up performance video fits so beautifully. It’s not in any way pretentious. It’s a bunch a friends in a room, having a good time being in a band… which is pretty much how the song was born in the first place,” Brendan Barnes reveals. The song is definitely something special and I have no doubt it’s going to be a hit for both acts. Remember to support local music by buying the track on iTunes today.
