We’ve been hyped about Aussie trio Chase Atlantic for the better part of a year and a half and we’re stoked they’ve emerged from hiding with a new sound that is equal parts electronic pop, vibe-y rock, and hip-hop. Mitchel, Clinton, and Christian dropped the first three songs of what will become their full length album earlier this year and they’re not slowing down with the second set of tracks aptly titled “Part Two.” The guys just dropped a mini movie for their new song “Triggered” and it flows perfectly with the world they’ve built around the tracks.
We got the chance to speak with Christian, Mitchel, and Clinton about their new songs, what’s next for Chase Atlantic, and the night they partied with The Weeknd and Drake! Read our interview with the guys below and get into it.
SecretFangirls.com: You guys just put out “Part Two” of what you’ve said will add up to your debut album. What made you decide to release the new music this way?
Chase Atlantic: We haven’t released music for awhile now, and we wanted to show growth/progression of our sound leading up to the full length release.
You released the video for “Into It” on Snapchat and you’ve been putting the separate single videos together to create a total visual experience. What can we expect from the full “part two” or the final album visual experience?
Your mind will be blown!
“Cassie” was inspired by the character the show Skins and you’ve said you’re pretty big fans of that show. What other shows are you obsessed with right now?
Anything from Parasite/ Tokyo Ghoul (Anime’s) to Stranger things. We usually don’t watch a lot of TV but we highly recommend watching those Anime’s even if you’re not into cartoons. They will literally change your outlook on life! Also, we may have a song based around one of the shows coming out very soon! 😉
How would you describe a Chase Atlantic show for someone who hasn’t seen you live before?
We tend to be a lot more adventurous live. It’s like a rock show meets a hip hop show, we would encourage everyone to come see for themselves!
What are some “must haves” on your tour rider?
Our manager Andrew Spalter, and The Heinekens (or Bud Light, please sponsor us).
What artist would you or have you totally “fangirled” over if you met? Any stories?
We met Abel (The Weeknd) at a bar called Delilah in West Hollywood. We saw him at the bar and we told him how he was a big inspiration to us, and how much we respect him. He was very kind, and very down to earth. We partied together after hours and Drake privately DJ’d for us, it was a fun night.
What’s next for Chase Atlantic? Any plans for more shows or a US tour?
Keep releasing quality content, and hopefully look to tour before the full album is released.
Or just search Chase Atlantic anywhere online! If you tend to forget names just think about the bank (Chase) and the ocean (Atlantic).
