If punk and indie electronic were somehow able to conceive, the result would be this wicked offspring of a track, “A-N-X-T”.
In the amp-up to their debut album, Tassie muso’s Chase City, have released another single and it’s everything fans could dream of. Drawing inspiration from classics such as David Bowie and Talking Heads, the track is a combination of heavy synth, guitar and fast paced drums, pulled together by frontman, Tarik Stoneman, who has a voice that would not sound out of place in a 1970s Brit-punk band.
According to Stoneman, the song has “a political lean, reflecting on some of the attitudes and issues we face in society and are geared at the role and impact of media in our lives,” and came together quite fast as a result of experimenting with other sounds after growing tired of their indie pop sound and like most such things, the result was a single that has come together incredibly naturally and will be loved by audiences across the nation.
“From synth minimalism, the snarling, disco-edged track grows. Clamoured vocals and a dominant, grinding rhythm recall early Bravery, but it’s the subtle play of duality that makes the group’s sonic shift a success.” – Rolling Stone Australia
