Chutney's self-titled EP is out today
GOLD COAST, QLD – Isolation certainly hasn’t slowed down these boys. Pioneers of condiment rock, Chutney, are serving up all things sugar and spice with their debut self-titled EP.
Recorded at Lovestreet Studios with longtime collaborator Scotty French behind the boards and with tracks mastered by Grammy-nominated Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys), the EP combines engaging storytelling through backdrops reminiscent of the atmospheric guitar rock of the noughties, resulting in five tracks that wouldn’t sound out of place within the catalog of bands such as Arctic Monkeys, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Ocean Alley, yet still retaining the distinctive Chutney sound, which Declan Byrne of Triple J’s Home and Hosed has referred to as “Sleepy” and “Coastal”. This genuine transmission of vibe continues to resonate with their loyal contingent of fans both home and abroad.
With pandemic requirements seemingly lifting from July/ August, the band already has shows booked at hometown favourites Elsewhere and Vinnie’s Dive Bar and plans to leave this period of social isolation in the distant past, with many more live shows in support of the EP to follow for the remainder of the year.
