Following on from releasing a slew of standout singles, Tasmanian-based indie rock quintet, Chase City, have returned to unveil their latest cut ‘A-N-X-T’ and an accompanying music video.
Front man Tarik Stoneman describes the inspiration and story behind the song –
“We wrote A-N-X-T well over a year ago at a time when we were experimenting pretty heavily having grown tired of the indie pop sound that we had been pursuing for the two years prior. The band was listening to a lot of old Talking Heads & Bowie records along with really getting into the DFA (label) inspired dance-punk scene that was around in the early 2000’s. The song came together rather quickly in the studio and had a very natural feel to it. We didn’t over complicate it and kept it largely minimal. The lyrics have a political lean, reflecting on some of the attitudes and issues we face in society and are geared at the role and impact of media in our lives.”
