Sand Meets Skyline
Posted by veronica | Aug. 9, 2012
More likely to garner prose on 20 Jazz Funk Greats than nab a local feature, Chandeliers continue their streak as the underrated giants of Chicago with their fourth studio album, Founding Fathers. Ten tracks of textured, balearic funk sway in the arms of analog synthesizer, imploring you to relax, let go, forget it all. Their sound is retro, but not dated, tropical Nintendo for urban nights, windswept and bleary-eyed on another 4am walk home alone. Chicago's best kept secret.
Founding Fathers is out now via Captcha Records and can be streamed and purchased digitally via Chandeliers' Bandcamp.
