Chronographs – Flat White
Chronographs release the summery vibes of Flat White, as Monthly Single #4
“These guys are making prog-rock relevant again.” Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio
In stark contrast to last month’s single ‘Porcelain’, with its dense arrangement and dark lyrical theme, Chronographs’ fourth track entitled FLAT WHITE is a shamelessly simple and bright summer tune.
The band explore yet another corner of alternative rock music with a bold up-beat song about spending summer on the coast with a new partner.
Guitarist Tom Ridley says: ‘Each of these singles represents precisely what’s happening in our lives at this very moment, because if how quickly we’re writing and releasing music. Porcelain described Jon’s grandpa’s battle with cancer, and how that affected the family. He sadly died last week, but rather than dwell on it, we’ve focused on the positives this month. Jon is wrapped up in a new relationship right now – you can hear it in his lyrics, and the music reflects how great that feels.’
CHRONOGRAPHS first hit the scene in 2010 with the online release of free EP, “The Outhouse Sessions”, creating a huge online buzz and demand for the live show, quickly prompting a string of headline shows around the UK, and a nationwide tour as main support for Mediaskare’s Hero In Error.
Following their initial wave of underground success, the band set out to write a new record with the intent of further raising the bar in terms of songwriting and technicality, and the resulting “Nausea” EP, has exceed all expectations. Boasting five tracks of raw aggression, fresh, bandwagon-dodging riffery and glorious refrains, this EP is the soundtrack of a band with a burning desire to breathe fresh life into the metal scene and a great taster of things to come.
The EP tracks “Opticks” and “Inanis” both appeared on separate Metal Hammer magazine cover-mounts, receiving an incredible response from fans and readers, creating huge anticipation for “Nausea”.
Following the release of “Nausea” at the beginning of 2013, CHRONOGRAPHS set off around the UK and Europe promoting the release with both tour and festival appearances.
Now into 2014, the band are departing on a new journey. Devoting their time to regular single releases every month, with musical and lyrical content documenting the environment and emotions of the quintet at the time of writing. The new CHRONOGRAPHS material is truthful, long-lasting, and unapologetically honest.
