The Chaw’s sound is very strong in character. Dark moody sounds, drenched in reverb, referencing soundtracks of the classic spaghetti westerns, big open bar chords and barky low register guitar leads ala Dick Dale, and psychedelic soundscapes, take you on a trip on a dusty trail through a vivid world, full of mystery, and intrigue.
This is territory beloved of bands like The Doors and the Velvets, right up to the present day and The Black Angels and The Warlocks, and The Chaw are welcome members to this illustrious club – they recently finished producing and recording their first full length LP which was released in November.
You can sample three tracks below (may we particularly recommend propulsive rhythms and guitar squalls of The Whole Night Through), and buy the album from their Bandcamp page here.
