The Chap

Proper Rock

A truly classic single. It’s infectious, blistering pop music, but all the while something is deliciously wrong here, making for what is sure to be one of the most intriguing releases of 2008.

“It’s cool and dry, and it’s all over the place as well. It’s sonically un-predictable and harmonically lopsided, yet almost infuriatingly catchy. It’s fractured and jerky, but smoothly enticing at the same time. It’s cerebral and detached in its methodology but visceral in its impact. Most of all, it’s fantastic fun. Serious fun.” The Wire

“The Chap are both gear and fab!” John Peel RIP

“Sufficient to gather up much of what is presented to us as contemporary cutting-edge pop and render it deeply mediocre by comparison” Guardian Guide, Track of the Week

“The Chap are the only group that have managed to combine the ruff and dirty energy of disco and rock with a sense of pastel warmth and melodic clarity.” Straight No Chaser
