Chalmers St

BandRockPop

Based in Sydney, Australia, Chalmers St delivers music containing elements of both melodic, atmospheric pop and harder rock, while being impossible to pigeonhole as either.

Biography

Formed in Sydney in late 2003, Chalmers St are a five-piece rock band, featuring Niki Gasper (vocals), Adam Somerville (guitars), Kristi Barrow (bass), Jock Elder (guitars/vox), and Namik Abdulhak (drums).

Equally at home in both electric and acoustic mode, Chalmers St produce a compelling mix of vocal melodies and harmonies, coupled with layered guitars and driving rhythms. Referencing the likes of Snow Patrol, Foo Fighters and Dave Matthews, as well as early Something For Kate and Radiohead, Chalmers St’s music contains elements of both melodic, atmospheric pop and harder rock, while being impossible to pigeonhole as either.

Chalmers St have recently spent some time in the studio with Sydney producer and musician Ant Whitehouse (Linocut, Expatriate), recording the band’s debut long player, titled “walking sleeping naked”, which is now available at the band’s shows and from their website at www.chalmersst.com.

Lyrics

Reasons

Written By: Jock Elder

And of myself, standards are rejected, One by one
Sell out yourself, forget about your consciece
They’re just your friends I think they’d understand

If I could make it up to you, I think that you’d find
Reasons of your own, sooner than you think

In this separate light, everybody’s watching,
But no-one says a word.
And hindsight is here before you know it
To sit in judgement of your instincts

If I could make it up to you, I think that you’d find
Reasons of your own,
Sooner than you think

If I could make it up to you

Catch

Written By: Jock Elder


When I say you won't catch me now
Pretend you can't tell what you've done to us

And you say back to my face that I
I don't care so much but
Everything that I hold dear has gone with you

Nothing I could know
Nothing less now just say so

And you say back to my face that I
I don't care so much but
Everything that I hold dear has gone away

All that you wanted
All that I need
All that I had
Everything's broken
Everything's gone
All that I had
