Chapel Club Album Review

Chapel Club – Palace Album Review

“Palace” is the debut album fromLeedsandLondonbased indie boys, Chapel Club, and for those who love The Smiths, Interpol and My Bloody Valentine, this is the album for you, and to help get you past those January blues.

Front man Lewis Bowman continuously exceeds expectations in the vocal department and his deep and haunting vocals on tracks such as “The Shore” adds a new level of depth to the album, cutting through the electro wall of sound that comes from the majority of the other tracks on the album.

They have fully grasped the concept of the mainstream, popular indie music, giving out an aura of pretentiousness that is key for every 80’s indie influenced band trying to make it in 2011.

Don’t be fooled however, the pretentiousness flowing out of their music, is a pretentiousness that doesn’t come across through their personalities, they are the most down to earth guys on the brink of hitting the big time I have ever met, and they deserve all the praise they get.
