Following the announcement that they will release a new album on Lo Recordings in January, The Chap are set to share a new single and video.
‘Bring Your Dolphin’ is the follow up to recent ‘Pea Shore’ and is another hint of what to expect from the band’s forthcoming album of dystopian delights.
New Album ‘Digital Technology,’ the seventh long player by The Chap, was recorded and produced by the band in London and Berlin over the past three years and will be digitally available and released on limited vinyl and CD.
The Follow up to ‘The Show Must Go’ from 2015 – The Chap’s foray into the world of the political rock song – the new collection features ten tracks and is arguably the band’s most beautiful album to date. Exploring abysses both personal and de-personalised, the record looks inward into a vast open space rather than onto a concrete political arena.
In the near future, when algorithms have feelings, they will write all our music. When they try to write pop music that sounds like it was made by talented Europeans in 2019 – it might sound something like ‘Digital Technology’.
To coincide with the album release, The Chap are set to play a run of shows in Germany. Further European and UK live dates will be announced in the very near future.
