Slowcrash, a four piece band from Durham Region, Ontario that includes Chris Draper (guitar, vocals), Szymon Janicki (guitar), Jordan Ciesielski (bass, vocals), and Neil Ledger (drums, vocals), released their debut self-titled EP in May.
It is honestly difficult to pick a favourite off of this seven track release. The EP as a whole is amazing. “Sleepwalking”, “Long Gone”, “Breathing”, and “Over and Over” would have to be my favourites, with the other three songs following extremely closely behind. To me they are the best songs for you to listen to if you wanted to get a feel of this band, “Over and Over” especially if you wanted to hear a slower song. These songs show the talent that this band has, whether it be vocally or instrumentally.
This may be one of the easiest EP’s I’ve reviewed because it would honestly be easier for me to tell you what I don’t like about this release, and even then it’s an extremely short list. This EP is highly impressive and well put together for a debut. If you like any type of rock music, you will love ‘Slowcrash’.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
