The latest single from the Crashcarburn album Gravity has been released and you can take a look at the video here. 

Heartbeat Racing is the follow up to the smash hit The Light and features ChianoSky on guest vocals.  Slightly more accessible than the usual punk rock style CrashCarBurn have become known for, the single shows a more versatile side to the band and is their first recorded collaboration to date. 

Crashcarburn’s front man Garth Barnes was excited about working with ChianoSky. “We've been wanting to do a track with a female vocal for ages now but just couldn't find the right voice. When we heard ChianoSky, there was no doubt she would be perfect for the track. She's got so much raw talent it's hard to believe, put her in front of a mic and the magic is instant!” he states.

Directed by the bands drummer Brendan Barnes aka Bugsy, the video is definitely a highlight of the bands career in terms of quality.

A high-end production driven by narrative, the video is a beautifully shot ‘short film’ styled look at a tragic night for two star-struck lovers, brought about by an emotionally driven mistake.

“The video for the single almost didn't happen. We had a very small window in December before we were off on tour and ChianoSky was also headed out on the road. In the end, we managed to shuffle some flights and the entire video was shot in one night on a ridiculously tight schedule.  Ironically, we spent a fortune on a rain machine and then it rained most of the night!” says Garth.
