5 years after giving birth to their debut album ‘Secondary Drowning’ (2018) and after already digitally unveiling the single “The Servant”, Swiss post-rock/progressive/post-metal four-piece Car Crash Weather just self-released their sophomore full-length record called ‘Terra Nostra’ on CD, LP & Digital through all streaming platforms. A conceptual album describing the human interaction with each other and with nature. Ultimately we are all part of the same system. Both as humans and as part ofnature we go through a circular movement of decay and reconstruction.
car crash weather started as a nameless, irregular and loose jam session and only gained traction slowly after some member changes and stylistic finding processes in the early years.Since around 2014 the band has been based in post-rock, post-metal and prog. The name stems from the desire to embody the essence of what music triggers in usthem. Regardless of musical background, the musicians share a love for the melancholic, massive, fragile, haunting and moving elements of a composition. Metaphorically speaking, they always have associated good music with atmospheric terms. A storm, black ice on the road, snowfall, the glittering sunlight on water, fog, rain. Conditions in which they actually don’t want to drive your car because you run the risk of causing an accident. As a first milestone, in 2016, CCW released a short EP called ‘Origins’, consisting of 3 songs. This was followed in 2018 by the release of their first long-play ‘Secondary Drowning’, a concept album about migration.The following years they invested in the elaboration of a new concept album, which saw the light on Spring 2023.
