Album Preview: Chase Atlantic – “Phases”

“Heaven is calling my name // I’m going through phases” croons Mitchel Cave in the title track off Chase Atlantic’s sophomore effort, “Phases” due out June 28th via BMG/MDDN.  Chase Atlantic, consisting of lead vocalist Mitchel, his older brother Clinton, and Christian Anthony are classically trained musicians who put their obsession with programming to the test when they started creating their own beats and eventually forming their own brand of hip-hop, pop, and rock.

Chase Atlantic’s sophomore album starts off with a slow build intro that’s a fun little taste of what these guys are able to create without lyrics. Clinton, Mitchel, and Christian really show their true production value by creating their own world for the album to exist in and bring it to life on tour.  These guys take pride in bending whatever rules there are and making everything their own.

After premiering a few new tracks on tour, “Angels” and “Heaven And Back,” Chase Atlantic have a cult following with fans eagerly awaiting the second they can have studio versions of tracks, no matter how high quality live recordings are.  Danceable beats paired with dark lyrics are what fans have come to expect from the Aussie group.

“No Rainbows,” “I Never Existed,” and “I Don’t Like Darkness” drift along like smoke throughout the album, intoxicating the room and drawing you into Chase Atlantic’s relaxed and introspective headspace.  “Heaven And Back” is the best example of what Chase Atlantic truly do best: craft a perfect driving song that makes you want to floor it on a neon lit city street in an expensive foreign sports car.

Mitchel, Clinton, and Christian have figured out how to tap into the feels in a way that doesn’t come off contrived.  “Even Though I’m Depressed” rounds out the record and is possibly the best representation of how we’re all feeling inside.  Lyrically, they tapped into exactly how many people feel everyday, put it into words, and are sharing the darkest part of their mind that many artists are afraid of sharing.

Chase Atlantic poured their everything into this record, and that will no doubt propel them in the stratosphere.  Catch them on the “Phases” Tour now with Lauren Sanderson. Check out all of the dates HERE!

Chase Atlantic Go To Space In “Love Is (Not) Easy” Video

Chase Atlantic blast off in their latest video for “Love Is (Not) Easy.”  With Clinton and Christian guiding the ship, Mitchel leaves the love of his life back on Earth and the crew suffer their demise proving that intergalctic love is in fact not easy.   When asked about the song, Mitchel said, “The song was inspired by a dear friend of ours who had recently suffered from heartbreak. He came into the studio and we asked him to write down how he felt and drew inspiration from both his story and our own personal situations. It’s kind of ironic how loving someone can be easy yet so difficult at the same time.”

When asked about the “Clarity” project, Kim said, “This project is all about finding myself. It started with ‘Broken’ and will end with Claritybecause it reflects my personal journey over the last two years. In writing my new music, I’ve learnt that a lot of the little things that go wrong in life don’t really matter at the end of the day. If anything, I’m now a stronger person because of them.”

Maggie Lindmann Premieres Cinematic Video For “Friends Go”

Goth GF Maggie Lindmann dropped her cinematic new video for her latest single, “Friends Go” and she’s fed up with being the third wheel! Maggie and her skate legend co-star Le’Andre Sanders crash her Barbie pink convertable in “Death By Third Wheel” directed by Van Alpert who’s worked with everyone including Post Malone.

When asked about his visual direction for the video, Alpert said, “I wanted the car to be a representation of Maggie‘s heart. The car crashing, bouncing and exploding in artistic ways gives you an overall feeling of excitement. When you lose your mind from being excluded from your friends or love, your heart goes through it, just like the car.  I strayed away from the obvious storyline, with the backbone being multiple beautiful crashes where no-one gets hurt.”

Watch the “Friends Go” mini movie “Death By Third Wheel” below!

The new single, “Friends Go” is a further exploration into mental health issues and serves as a prelude to Maggie’s forthcoming full-legth project set to be released later this year. Since emerging with her breakthrough song “Pretty Girl”, she has swerved into a darker, more reflective approach with her music.  Along with documenting her foray into becoming a guitar shredding pop star, Maggie has amassed over a billion streams, over 3 million Instagram followers, and several fashion lines including her latest collab with Zumiez!

Chase Atlantic Drop Lyric Video For “STUCKINMYBRAIN”

Chase Atlantic are gearing up for a massive Summer with the release of their latest single, “STUCKINMYBRAIN” from their forthcoming sophomore LP titled “Phases” due out June 28th, 2019 through BMG/MDDN.

Talking about the new album, lead singer Mitchel Cave manages fans expectations for the new Chase Atlantic era.  “We made this album because we wanted to drastically pivot the angle in which pop culture is viewed and ultimately digested. This album feels as though it is truly a work of astronomical measures. It’s the first time we were able to honestly and openly hone into something so monumentally special and raw without compromising even an inch of our integrity as artists. We’ve developed a completely new sound within a matter of months that has never been tapped into before. Chase Atlantic is now dwelling within a realm of its own; it’s both scarily isolating and blissfully euphoric at the same time. Welcome to a whole new era.”

When asked about the new single, Mitchel said, “ ‘STUCKINMYBRAIN’ is an undeniably raw confession on mental health, and how prevalent mental health issues are in modern day society.  The song discusses the horrifying reality of barely being able to get out of your own bed and leave the house, let alone engage in a simple conversation. To be imprisoned by such a crippling disorder like that; it can make you feel as though you’re literally stuck in your own brain.”

Watch the official lyric video for “STUCKINMYBRAIN” below.

Broadside Release Two New Singles, “King Of Nothing” & “Empty”

Broadside have been awfully quiet lately but that just means they’re putting in the work behind the scenes on new music.  The guys have been teasing two new singles for several weeks and now fans can finally listen to tracks on Spotify as well as pre-order a copy of the exclusive, limited edition colored 7″ vinyls.  Singer Oliver Baxxter broke down the inspiration for the two tracks, “King Of Nothing” and “Empty,” and we can’t be more excited to hear what they’ve been working on!

“King Of Nothing” focuses on the post show feelings, which can be totally opposite to what fans feel.  “This is a song about wanting to be the best,” states Baxxter. “We chose this life as touring musicians but it can be painfully lonely. We all want to be heard and play to massive crowds while making enough money that our parents won’t worry about our futures. I’m so proud of our accomplishments as a band but some nights, after the show ends and those crowds leave the venue, when you’re in the back seat of a dark van, you feel like you’re not doing enough and those dreams you have become nightmares of what you’ll never achieve. You can be on top of the world and have nothing.”

Broadside continue to prove themselves as the new kings of heavy lyrics paired with bouncy pop melodies and they showcase that on “Empty.”  When asked about the new track, Baxxter playfully admits,  “I was going through a real out of body misery when writing this song. The duality of a being a broken-hearted romantic splits a person. On one hand, you’ve been wronged, you should run and never look back. On the other, the rewarding time spent and memories made keep you trapped in the worrisome ‘what if this person leaves’ psychosis. I wanted to write a dance-y song making fun of how unfortunate it is to be in love, sometimes.”

Listen to the new tracks on Spotify below!

Be sure to catch Broadside on tour with Set It Off across North America kicking off on June 11th. Check out all of the dates here!

Pre-orders for brand new Broadside merch including long sleeves, baseball tees, and flags, as well as the exclusive, colored 7″ vinyls are available now!
