Every once in a while we stumble across a track that blows us away. You know the sort. A track that screams pure class. Atmospheric, meaningful and lyrically perfect. Haunting and emotional. The kind of track that leaves you with a bemused smile. Hand-crafted musical greatness that so few people have had the pleasure to hear. On one level you’re ecstatic; you’ve beaten the masses to a hidden gem. On another level, you can’t fight the disappointment; a song this good needs to be heard.
Crumble and Crawl is one of those tracks. The moment it hit the speakers at Urban Antenna HQ, we stopped and listened from start to finish. How has this track gone so relatively unnoticed?!
Stop what you’re doing and listen to this right now!!
18th & Addison are the band behind this moreish slice of rock heaven. Sharing vocals and guitar to wonderful effect, Tom Kunzman and Kait DiBenedetto just click. The group formed in New Jersey in 2013 and we suspect their talent has been pissing off envious local bands ever since.
Little Parasites was 18th & Addison’s 2015 debut EP and it delivered a raw blend of high energy pop-punk that shows why they forged a reputation as a must-see live act. The release of their first full length album, Makeshift Monster, in 2016 saw a more refined approach rise to the surface. The fast-paced guitar and upbeat lyrics are still there but everything is more purposeful and professional. It’s clear Tom and Kait were growing in confidence and it shows. Support grew in the aftermath of Makeshift Monsters and increased opportunities for studio time fuelled their ambition even further, as Crumble and Crawl proves so well.
Crumble and Crawl marks a huge coming of age. It’s classy, mature, well produced and memorable. Their early tracks were made for partying; this one’s made for listening. Judging by this, 18th & Addison are one of the most exciting upcoming bands on the horizon and we’ll be watching them all the way.
