‘A song that takes the listener on a poetic journey’ – The Spill Magazine
Toronto – May 6th, 2019 – Toronto-based alt-pop band Madame Psychosis is celebrating their showcase at Canadian Music Week with the release of “Crashing Down”, their second release of 2019. With poetic lyrics and soaring vocals, “Crashing Down” moves from the melodic dreamscape captured in the verses to the crunching guitars that characterize the dark and explosive chorus. This juxtaposition highlights the inevitability of life’s ups and downs, the primary theme of the song. “Crashing Down” was recorded at Union Sound Company in Toronto and mixed by Alex Gamble. It premiered exclusively with The Spill Magazine on May 1st and is available on all major streaming services today. The band will also be releasing a music video for the single on May 13th.
The five-piece band first made waves with their debut album “Madame Psychosis”, released in June of 2017. Alan Cross, the internationally syndicated host of The Ongoing History of New Music, selected the single “Space Motorcycle” for his weekly Top 11 Playlist in August of 2017. The album was also featured on 94.9 The Rock’s emerging artist spotlight Generation Next.
In January of 2019, the band released “Just Wanna Be Myself” as the lead single off their upcoming sophomore record and performed it live on Global’s nationally televised The Morning Show. A Journal of Musical Things says it’s “a fun, upbeat song with sweet yet edgy female vocals”. Dropout Entertainment calls “Just Wanna Be Myself” “a pop-rock diddy”. Stereo Stickman says, “there’s a genuine air of honesty that runs throughout their songwriting…this song is one that gets better and better with each revisit.”
Coming off the heels of this positive reception, Madame Psychosis is now turning their attention to showcasing songs from their upcoming album. They will be performing as part of Canadian Music Week at Stackt on May 8th. They will also be supporting Bangalore-based band Parvaaz, who were described by Rolling Stone as “India’s most exciting band right now”, at Revival Bar on May 10th.
