With youthful, throwaway energy and a penchant for flowers, Chase Atlantic has arrived, as a surprise to no one in Australia, where they have been working on their sound for the better part of a decade. Self-described as ‘dark, alternative pop’, with a clear rock emphasis, the high-pulse and the sharp language seem to be in perfect lock-step with the increasingly international crowd they have cultivated, all while remaining grounded, and without losing sight of their hometown sensibility.
Chase Atlantic was founded by two brothers and a mutual friend, and those early bonds no doubt contributed to their tireless work-ethic towards self-promotion. After two very successful independent EPs, and a debut release on Warner Bros. records, they are back with their new single LIKE A ROCKSTAR. It is a melody-driven brain dump of memories and directives, scattered over a club beat, illustrating - as the best pop does - where we are as a culture.
