Band: CHUM
Who: A 4-piece enigma from London. They have already gained an underground reputation for bringing a live show which floats somewhere between séance, pantomime and bad trip. They have a passion for humour, theatrics and the ethereal all the while set to a backdrop of crushing bass heavy sonics, maniacal kraut-tinged drumming and toe-tapping pop-esque melodics, interspersed with a dry somewhat disturbed vocal delivery.

Out: 7 April via Crackedankles. Expect
a mental-groove-infused 8-track record.

It came a few weeks ago and the 7″ version
sold out in 45 minutes. Hallelujah!

Turn Up The Volume was heavily impressed and still is: “What a brainbreaker,
what a mindtwister. From the get-go repetitive Krautrock dynamics do your
head without asking permission first. It just happens in an eye-ear blink. Its
trance-inducing beats create a hypnotic and puzzling razzmatazz you can’t
and you won’t escape from. Touchdown!”

Press play and get impressed too.
