From the second you hit play, to the moment you put your IPod away, Crash Coordinates hits you with memorable melodies, air guitar worthy riffs, and heartfelt lyrics. Their music can be described as an intelligent blend of Pop and Rock. The name derives from their intentions of sharing their music with the world. Hence, “Crash” signifies blasting their music to different places, and “Coordinates” denotes their listeners.
Hailing from Tempe, Arizona, old-time friends Chris Kalla (singer/guitarist) and Chris Wahl (guitarist) decided to create a career out of their passion for music. When both members came together, they knew they needed talented musicians to finalize their sonic group. That’s when members Jon Stoddard (drummer), Kevin Williams (bass) and Vincent Liou (keys) were added to the lineup.
The band members have endured finishing college while playing music full time, putting in significant time in practicing and promoting, touring different cities, and establishing their name in the scene. They have played with such established artists such as The Higher, A Rocket to the Moon, Anarbor, The Summer Set, Breathe Carolina, Never Shout Never, Saosin and Eye Alaska.
Crash Coordinates’ sophomore album “The Business of Making You Move” drops in mid-November of this year and can be purchased on both ITunes and Smartpunk. The record is filled with talent from the first song to the last. Each song explores their musical limits, from the sing-at-the-top-of-your-lungs single “The Scandal”, to the head-banging album-ending track “Use You”.
