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 we have been based in post-rock, post-metal and prog.
Our name stems from the desire to embody the essence of what music triggers in us. Regardless of musical background, we share a love for the melancholic, massive, fragile, haunting and moving elements of a composition. Metaphorically speaking, we have always associated good music with atmospheric terms. A storm, black ice on the road, snowfall, the glittering sunlight on water, fog, rain. Conditions in which you actually don't want to drive your car because you run the risk of causing an accident.
As a first milestone, in 2016 we released a short EP called "Origins", consisting of 3 songs. This was followed in 2018 by the release of our first longplayer "Secondary Drowning", a concept album about migration. The following years we invested in the elaboration of a new concept album, "Terra Nostra".
Show-wise, we can look back on quite a few local, national and international gigs, be it as DIY-organized gigs, as openers for internationally known bands or in the context of well-known festivals of the scene. We are very much looking forward to keeping it going.
