CHAPPO – Hang On

CHAPPO

CHAPPO

We are not sure why, but it has taken NYC psychedelic, indie boys CHAPPO quite some time to get themselves over to the UK. Perhaps because they love touring so much.

Anyway, their latest single ‘Hang On’ was released in the US some time a go, and it’s due for release in the UK on 23 November via Caroline International.

We love frontman Alex Chappo’s deep vocals set against a subtly epic chorus. This is definitely a slow burner, but one that is worth listening to a few times to appreciate its validity as a cracking indie tune.

The video follows a crashed space traveller from another time (played by Alex Chappo) who spends his last hours wandering New York City among its millions of inhabitants. Stranded and mystified, he feels the magnitude of loneliness and awe as he searches for a place to expire.

It’s the first release from their forthcoming second album ‘Future Former Self’, which is due out on 22 January 2016, and will coincide with a UK tour.

Sounds like: Arcade Fire, Of Montreal, Big Data, Imagine Dragons, The Flaming Lips, The Rolling Stones
