Band To Watch: Chief

By Will Oliver, June 1st 2010 — with 4 comments Band To Watch MP3

Man, where did Chief come from? They are a 4 piece band from California that just emerged out of no where. The band members met while attending NYU, and the rest is history. Last night I discovered their song “Night & Day” and I had it on repeat for a solid half an hour straight. Domino Records were smart enough to snag, and they plan to release the band’s debut album Modern Rituals on August 17th.

When listeneing to the vocals presented in Chief, I can’t help but think of The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser. This is a very good thing, since the Walkmen rock. The song may remind people of bands like Local Natives, and even older artists like Neil Young. That is the cool thing about Chief. There are elements of old and new tied deep within their roots. Chief’s songs feature lush harmonies, beautiful instrumentation that feels natural and organic. The best way to describe “Night & Day” is joyful and pure. One of the cooler songs I’ve heard of late.

Keep an eye out for Modern Rituals. Something tells me it is going to be as strong of a debut album as they come.
