Following on from 2008’s critically acclaimed Stop, Space, Return, Crazy P return for their fifth studio album When We On, released 27th September through Smoke N’ Mirrors for North America.
Alongside the wealth of brilliant remixes they have served up recently, When We On shows how far Crazy P have come since 2008. Whether it’s the anthemic ‘Beatbox’, with its freeform acapella work, grinding Prince—style guitar and haunting strings, the reflective ‘Eruption’, driven on by a rave piano figure and lead singer Danielle Moore’s plaintive cry of “Let me be the one you run to” or, at the other end of the scale, the Detroit techno-esque ‘Sonar’, with its increasingly frenetic payoff, this is an album packed full of potential singles. They might be crazy, but they sure know where the tunes are located.
“With Stop Space Return we wrote the majority of that as a band,” explains Jim Baron. “For this, we decided to strip it back to me and Toddy (Chris Todd. Guitar/Keys) writing with Danielle. We gave Danielle the Loop Station and she’s really taken to it. You can layer vocals, you can hear harmonies immediately, so she can jam along with us now. It shaped a lot of the vocal sound for the album. There’s a tune called ‘We Can Only Be Who Are’ which has big vocal layering, and there’s a lot of that. It’s probably a bit more… grown-up.”
Chris expands on the theme: “We had quite a big year last year for lots of different reasons and we had difficulties too and I think a lot of the writing came out of that. It’s a little bit more reflective and thoughtful than previous albums.”
For Danielle, it’s been a revelation in the way they work. “It was back to basics,” she says. “I’d have a go on the keyboards using two fingers or I’d have a go on the drum machine. It was like being at school or in a huge sandpit where you’ve been given loads of buckets to muck about with. We had a loop station as well which I’ve always been nervous of and this time it was like right let me have a go of this and it allowed me to record my vocals.”
For Danielle, the album narrative is the camaraderie between its protagonists. “Their friendship came through in creating this album. The way we worked created a lot of intimacy between us and a definite warmth to the album.”
Despite the suggestions of melancholy from the band, and they certainly know how to emote when the moment’s right, they haven’t forgotten how to party. “We’re open for service, we’re open for love,” sings Danielle. Crazy, but true.
The first single drops September 6th in North America on Om imprint, Smoke N’ Mirrors w/ remixes from Ron Basejam and Hot Toddy. Listen & Download to the single below! The album, “When We On” drops September 27th!
