After a brief hibernation, Minneapolis-based rock outfit Chicane Theory are thawing out the winter’s cold with a new full-length album, Things Look Up Again, due this May. The new tracks feature a broad range of vintage guitar tones from dissonant speaker-ripping fuzz to hauntingly beautiful tape echoes, dynamic drum beats, and accessible vocal melodies

Biography

Chicane Theory is a three piece alternative rock band based in Minneapolis, MN. Coming off a newly recorded a 12-track album, Things Look Up Again, the band is currently booking a midwest tour to support a May CD release. Chicane Theory's sound is guitar-driven, makes interesting use of song structure, leans on vintage tones interwoven with fresh modern sonic effects, and strong vocal melody, all while maintaining an accesible radio-friendly sound. Our past releases have been played on over 200 radio stations across North America, received international reviews, promoted GAP jeans 1969 line, were selected for use by major network TV shows, and helped land local TV show appearances and radio interviews. We've played a variety of live shows ranging from hole in the wall clubs, to large venues and festivals.

Lyrics

Decision

Written By: Nicholas L. Roesler

Why can't you get at something else?
Don't wanna get it somewhere else
Six o'clock is too long, to wait in line
Feels so good to be home. Lose track of time.

Decide to live
You're like an old friend

Why can't you get at something else?
Don't wanna get it somwhere else
Stay awake for the dawn. I know she'll try.
He's too close to the farm. Lose track of time.

Decide to live
You're like an old friend

Fuzzy

It’s not enough, so you took
It’s not enough, won’t go far
It’s not enough, you changed
Give it up and throw away

Everybody said you said I’m fine
Everybody said you lost your mind

It’s not enough, you want more
It’s not enough, cash or charge
It’s not enough, you became
Use once and throw away

Everybody said you said I’m fine
Everybody said you lost your mind

It’s not enough, so you took
It’s not enough, won’t go far
It’s not enough, you change
Give it up and throw away

Everybody said you said I’m fine
Everybody said you lost your mind
