Crash Your Car – “Tearing Down Your Walls”


A stylish and soulful production, “Tearing Down Your Walls” is a resonating new track from Los Angeles-based trio Crash Your Car. The release represents the first single from the second installment of their saga, Humanity Dies With Earth, which “tells the story of 3 car mechanics, abducted by aliens, returning to earth 50 years later with a message of imminent doom.”

Thumping bass and stutter-y keys surround suave vocals and an eventual brass embrace, with the title-touting vocal transfixing amidst the soulful instrumentation. “Tearing Down Your Walls” compels with its jazzy, atmospheric allure throughout, fronted by a stirring title-touting refrain that’s wholly replay-inducing. A more expansive feeling to the brass and keys flourishes in the satisfying, cohesive conclusion.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Funk, Soul, R&B.
