CHICKN is a rock band and collective that consists of Athens' finest.
It's a shape that evolves in time, occupying the necessary vital and expressive space that corresponds to it while denying any prediction.
It's a game, or at least it always starts as a game.
WOWSERS! is the sophomore album of CHICKN,
out on May 10th 2018 on Inner Ear Records (vinyl, digital), following their debut LP (Inner Ear, 2016).
WOWSERS! was recorded on the verge of 2017 and 2018
and features 9 electric elegies that unfold their agitated collective psyche.
CHICKN, after releasing a double LP, an EP, three singles and a half a dozen of bootlegs, decided to embrace their inner voice and capture the essence of their live interaction with this Acid Glam record.
Sunny and colourful, sometimes comforting, sometimes alarming, always fast and bulbous, WOWSERS! oozes with West-Coast vibes and proto-punk explosions. Enchanting space-outs rise like monuments of absence, carefully balanced by meteoric freakouts that insist on your presence. In the meantime, a fine blend of lyrical horns, alluring percussion, whimsical drumming, arcade guitar riffs, sensual basslines and ankle-played keyboards will chaperon you in this 38-minutes trip.
EU tour scheduled in May. A new tour in the making September / October 2018.
Stooges, CAN, Grateful Dead, Captain Beefheart, T-Rex, Sun Ra, Syd Barret, David Bowie, Red Crayola
