With their mix of deep and delicious tribal influenced beats, sexy, synth-laced rhythms and undeniable vocal prowess (see:their lavish new E.P. Part Three) Australian based trio Chase Atlantic is hitting everything and everyone in all of the right places with their distinct one-of-a-kind groovy as f@ck sound.
Consisting of brothers Mitchel Cave, Clinton Cave and music bestie Christian Anthony, the boys from down under aren’t just wowing their overseas critics and fans, but gaining a quick stateside following as well, much in part as being locked and loaded as the opening spot on rock/punk band Sleeping with Sirens current U.S. tour, which is about to bulldoze its way to The Foundry at The Fillmore Philly later tonight. (get those tickets here).
But before Chase Atlantic wows all of Philly–and that they will do–they stopped by Philly Mixtape for a spot of fresh brewed music tea, where they broke mugs about life on the road, how they would personally describe their unique sound and what words of wisdom they would give to any aspiring performer who decided right this second to enter this bat shit crazy business.
Take a seat and take a tasty sip with Chase Atlantic below…you’ll certainly be glad you did.
Okay, first up…how are you guys feeling leading up to the big show tonight? We’re super excited! We’re only half way through the tour and we feel like we’ve never been more in-sync as a band. It’s gonna be wild!
Is this your first time in Philly? If so, are you going to be able to hang out a bit and check out the city? This will be our first time in Philly, just like most places we’ve performed on this tour. We’ll definitely try our best to do a little exploring and get up to no good!
Let’s spill about your unique sound. I personally would describe it as pure baby makin’ goodness. Now, how would you guys personally describe it? Haha! Surprisingly enough that’s actually what quite a few people say to us when we meet them. We struggle to describe it ourselves sometimes, but I like to look at as an interesting fuse of genres that just emits waves of energy.
Shout out some of all of your musical influences…. Shout outs……. The Weeknd…..Tame Impala…….Travis Scott……Lil’ Uzi Vert….Sticky Fingers…..all y’all!!!
What’s been maybe the hardest part of your journey so far? What’s been the biggest highlight? The hardest part is definitely having to deal with sickness on the road. Because we’re in close quarters; if one gets sick we all get sick. But there have been far too many highlights, so they definitely outweigh the cons.
So, what’s next after the tour? We’re jumping straight back into the studio and doing what we do best, produce music that the world wants to hear….in the humblest of ways!
One last sip, what would you guys personally say to an aspiring musician who just stepped foot in the industry right this very second? Nothing comes easily. It may seem that way sometimes, but it’s absolutely crucial to put in hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication. You have to hone your craft and dedicate your life to this shit. Give it your all or go home, simple.
