Opening 2021 with an intimate cover of The Smiths ‘There Is a Light That Never Goes Out”, THE CHASE started the year hitting home with those very applicable lyrics. Proving that this was just the calm before the storm, BLACK CLOUDpunches through with its high energy, post-punk sound. Having been tipped by This Feeling on their prestigious Big In 2021 list, THE CHASE aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.
“Although Britpop has had a huge inspiration on our sound we take a huge influence from 1960’s northern soul, rock and roll and psychedelia, all the way to punk, post-punk and indie.” – Tyler, Vocals/Lead Guitar.
Not being able to gig during the pandemic might be a killer for the band, but they’ve been diverting that energy to their writing and recording. The high energy music video for Black Cloud, due for release the week after the track, gives a taste of their onstage presence.
Our brand new single “Black Cloud’ was mixed by Sheffield’s very own Alan Smyth (Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Reverend & The Makers) and mastered by the legendary Abbey Road studios. We’ve managed to record plenty of music and create great content in between lockdowns (never thought we’d be saying anything like that a year ago) so that’s definitely a bonus – all will be revealed soon enough!” – Tyler, Vocals/Lead Guitar.
