"Review of Chalmers St gig at The Spectrum, Oxford St Darlinghurst, October 11 2005"

"The word must be spreading - Spectrum is heaving tonight. It's shoulder-to-shoulder, wall-to-wall madness in here as everyone is craning to get a better look at Sydney's Chalmers Street

They bring to the table a clean and wholesome brand of pop-rock and serve it up with dirty bass and flame-licked guitar riffs. This is the kind of show that nearly everyone should be able to appreciate (thrash-metal fans excluded); there's a distinct level of innocence and intimacy in the performance, a buzz of excitement radiating from a band who have found their feet… and an audience. The group is fronted by a slightly shy but totally cute songstress with a beautiful and powerful voice that lifts the room and shakes the cobwebs out of it. When combined with her guitarist's voice, the harmonies have a Killing Heidi quality to them and it's not surprising that the crowd cries for an encore at the end." - Jager Uprising

Feeling a bit camera shy


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
