"CD Review - Serotonin Crush"

"Falling Down," "Shout It Out," and "So Far Gone" are reminiscent of a cross between Green Day and Weezer meets Led Zeppelin, maybe with some Oasis thrown in - simplified pop tunes with attitude. There's not a weak track on this album, amazing considering their relative recent appearance on the scene. Yet several tracks stand out above the rest. "Monkey Man," the tale of a day in the life of a rock and roll wannabe, with slick production and searing guitar work, and the acoustically driven ballad "We'll Be Together" are perfect fits in regular rotation on new rock radio. - Dan Brisebois, Canadian Bands

"CD Review"

“Serotonin Crush, S/T - Local music lovers are bound to find something on this Calgary trio's slick, new rock record. Funky metal? Gotcha covered with Monkey Man. Heartfelt ballad? Done and done with We'll Be Together. Party pop? All you want on Come Alive. And, to the band's credit, they make it work, make it their own. Check 'em out live Thursday at Rusty Cage South.” - Mike Bell, Calgary Herald

New: Sophomore CD due Fall/Winter 2013! Stay tuned!

When Calgary trio Serotonin Crush step onto a stage, they only have one goal in mind - That each and every audience member is smiling and humming at least one Serotonin Crush song long after the last note is played. That goal certainly isn’t unattainable. This Alberta band knows how to write a catchy tune, and their live shows are fun, exciting and energetic. On Serotonin Crush’s self-titled debut, songs crackle with energy and sparkle with melody, yet there is substance to the lyrics and a richness to its modern pop-rock sound. The propulsive rhythm section, consisting of drummer Bill Zembiak and bassist Jeremy Spencer both drive and centre the album’s 14 tracks, while singer Ryan Farkas’ sweeping guitar hooks lift each song, captivating the listener. “The main message of the CD is hope,” says Ryan. “I think is speaks universally to all generations.” Serotonin Crush formed in 2009, when high school friends Ryan and Jeremy reconnected. Ryan then drafted in Bill, with whom he had played in a few local bands over the years. Within a few months Serotonin Crush was playing to sold out rooms in Calgary and getting radio play on radio stations across Canada. The band’s blend of rock (think Blink 182 meets Foo Fighters), and Goo Goo Dolls-style melodic power-pop is radio-friendly and accessible, it’s by no means lightweight. Recorded in Jeremy’s home studio, Serotonin Crush’s debut album captures the band’s broad musical tastes and background. But it’s their live show that has left fans across Alberta wanting more. “Whether there’s 50 people or 5000, we give our live shows the same high energy every time,” explains Jeremy. “We appreciate all the hard-working people out there who take the time to come out and support us". Serotonin Crush will be heading out on the road this summer playing festivals and clubs around western Canada. Currently recording their follow up CD out spring 2013.
