Album: All Walls Fall
Release Date: May 12, 2017
The New Customs, a duo from Winnipeg have released their latest album, All Walls Fall. The nine song release features the duo’s talent in the form of multiple instruments, harmonies, and thought provoking lyrics. Emma Cloney and Dale Brown also have a few scattered tour dates from now until September, which you can find out more about here.
The album opens with the title track and an infectious beat that will capture the attention of the listener. “The Old Farmhouse”, a slower song on the album, begins with beautiful, emotional fiddle playing, before picking up the beat, sounding akin to something that would come out of the Maritimes. “Leave The Light On” starts off with Brown’s voice taking the lead, as opposed to the usual coming from Cloney, before the two harmonize in the chorus. The album closes on “Stretched Upon Your Grave” with amazing harmonies between the duo, accompanied by more of the emotional fiddle playing in the background.
This album is definitely something you need to check out if you’re a fan of the band or of the genre, or maybe even if you’re just on the look out for something new to add to your summer playlist. All Walls Fall will definitely make me remember the duo’s name.
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.
