Video of the Moment #255: Chapel Club

By on Friday, 28th May 2010 at 6:00 pm

So it’s been awhile since I heard something so boldly reminiscent of the post-punk era from the early ‘80s. Yet “Five Trees” by London-based Chapel Club is the type of swirling song that spins you right back to a time when said genre occasionally branched out into mainstream territory.

It came to little surprise then that this tune would make one sit up and hear vocals that are hauntingly familiar to that of legend Ian McColloch, most notably of Echo and the Bunnymen fame. What’s more, lines such as “Dust in my heart, dust in my veins/I strayed too far into a dream” provide the perfect backdrop against the wave of guitar wonderment, tied neatly together with both melodic and rhythmic bliss.

Such a song is apt to stir souls and once again give meaning to the grander music movements from 30 years ago.

This band continue to excite me – I don’t think this beats O Maybe I – but I enjoy their dark indie.
