Looking for some fresh new tunes? Well boy, do I have news for you! Tasmanian indie-rockers Chase City are back with a brand new single called A-N-X-T, recorded and produced by none other than ARIA winning Magoo (AKA Lachlan Goold).
A-N-X-T encompases everything we love and know about indie-rock/indie-pop; think Australian band Faker but modernized, mixed with some Franz Ferdinand vibes, finalised with some of the bands own unique sound sprinkled on top.
Chase City‘s front man Tarik Stoneman describes the inspiration and story behind the song.
“We wrote A-N-X-T well over a year ago at a time when we were experimenting pretty heavily having grown tired of the indie pop sound that we had been pursuing for the two years prior. The band was listening to a lot of old Talking Heads & Bowie records along with really getting into the DFA (label) inspired dance-punk scene that was around in the early 2000’s. The song came together rather quickly in the studio and had a very natural feel to it. We didn’t over complicate it and kept it largely minimal. The lyrics have 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.”
Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for a music video to accompany A-N-X-T as well as some tour dates. Chase City are also set to release their debut album in early July, and it’s definitely one we’ll be looking forward to here at Extendable.
