LOVES020: CHUMP – At Least We Got A Song Out Of It
We’re back once again! This time with a single from Glasgow’s CHUMP.
Recorded at Green Door Studio, the A-side is ‘At Least We Got a Song Out of It’. A shrugging kiss-off of a song, a diss track for summertime. The B-side ‘Lose Your Life’ features bass player Tony on vocals, calmly offering advice to the listener against a lullaby-esque instrumental.
Release date: 31st March 2017
Released on limited edition vinyl 7” and download. The vinyl version features a risograph sleeve featuring artwork by singer Tara, plus a download of both songs and a bonus track.
To celebrate we’re having a couple of parties in Edinburgh and Glasgow:
“every song effortlessly pieces together a narrative of a trouble, a grungey, slow-core take on American songwriting that never feels like it’s anywhere near a cliche” Monorail Music, Glasgow
“Conjuring up sleepy, hazy days… really pull you in with their lyrics” Ravechild
“sulky, angsty and strikingly beautiful in its delivery” Overdrive
“first appear to have a slower, solemn drone, yet their sound disintegrates into loud, melancholic, distorted noise” Indulge Sound
CHUMP are a sulkcore three-piece from Glasgow. “the kind of music you’d heard for last dance at the prom in a ‘90s teen dramedy… before the flames rise up and everyone dies.” It started as the sleepyheaded bedroom project of singer and guitarist (yeah, she knows it’s upside-down) Tara, and soon loudly woke up with the addition of drummer Matt and bass player Tony.
They’ve played shows with the likes of Chastity Belt, PAWS, and Diet Cig.
In late 2016 they recorded at Green Door Studios. These songs became their first EP, the cassette Treat Me Mean, which they released by themselves as a non-prank on April Fool’s Day. It’s all worked out though because they’ve had to repress that cassette.
Returning to Green Door Studios, they recorded their forthcoming 7” on Gerry Loves Records, ‘At Least We Got a Song Out of It’. A shrugging kiss-off of a song, a diss track for summertime. The b-side ‘Lose Your Life’ features Tony on vocals, calmly offering advice to the listener against a lullaby-esque instrumental.
