Bergen-based trio Chain Wallet have perfected the art wistful pop, making sorrow sound incredibly dreamy. New cut “Faded Fight” has a wide-screen sensibility, an expansive soundscape of chiming guitars and discordant synths.
Band member Frode Boris explains the band’s ethos and sound: “We want to capture the acute distress of an afflicted character; his self-indulgent pity, gradual loss of touch with reality and his forlorn attempts on returning to normal life. The abrupt disintegration unveils interesting tensions between urgency and inertia. The album is about fragmented memories, unfulfilled ambitions and the quiet whisper of a stranger.”
The band’s self-titled debut LP will be released on 7 October.
