"Two Chapels"

Two Chapels are a brand spankin’ new electro-mood duo out of Brooklyn, New York consisting of Jenn Grossman on vocals and Marc Wilhite on all things beat and programmed. They’ve only released a couple of songs to date but this wee sampling gives you a good idea of what they bring to the table, which is fairly straight ahead cerebral electronic music with a dark edge.

The two tracks available, “Free You” and “What Are You Still Fighting For” are entrancing and emotive, exploring the spacey realms of conscious electronic music that is bound to make you think a little more deeply.
“Free You” explores the emotional depth of one who has taken on the noble act of letting go of something that no longer serves, and in doing so has freed both themselves and the person, place or thing that was in need of releasing. It is heavy in nature yet you can feel the weight of lifting, giving the song and musicians the wings with which they fly.
“What Are You Still Fighting For” is a gorgeous meditation, short and to the point with a pulse of rhythm that is infectious and a message that is true.

There will likely be a of comparing of Two Chapels to Massive Attack but that’s what happens when you take moody low-end beats, spine soothing synthesizer and velvety smooth female vocals. However, this isn’t to say at all that Two Chapels are unoriginal. They have indeed taken on a familiar sound but they’ve tweaked it and re-branded it as their own.
Two Chapels music is relevant and honest, not trying to push too hard at the envelope while offering up something new that feels comfortable and easy to digest. With only two songs to go on, this is simply a taste of what is to come, but it is a tasty taste if I ever tasted one. Only Jenn and Marc know what they have up their collective sleeves come the release of their summer EP, and soon we will too. Stay tuned!

"two chapels - 'Free You'"

When Jenn Grosman and Marc Wilhite met while studying at NYU, they each happened
to represent two different forms of musical creativity; Grosman being a multi-media
artist and vocalist, and Wilhite being a electronic music producer/composer and programmer.
Two different creative minds coming together to create a new musical mood with the
same rapture one finds in religion, hence their name, two chapels. Their first single,
‘Free You’ is a slow-paced, hypnotic tune that in the first few notes brings you into a
haunting mood. But Grosman’s vocals are like a beacon cutting through and adding
to the murkiness of the beat, leaving you totally enveloped in the ensuing sound. If
their upcoming EP due out this summer is anything like this song, there may be
quite a few more devotees to the sound of two chapels. - Manifesto Mag

"Artist Spotlight: Two Chapels"

Two Chapels are a duo with roots in NYC (Jenn Grossman and Marc Wilhite). They have an electro-pop, down-tempo style — Jenn is a multi-faceted artist and Marc produces and programs the tunes. If you have a love for Purity Ring, Crystal Castles, and Massive Attack, you will enjoy the sounds of Two Chapels!

When I listened to “Free You“, the vocals were crisp, and the sound was a bit hypnotic. It was dream like in a sense with an emotional pull and gloomy undertone. Two Chapels are currently in the lab creating their debut EP that is set to release summer 2013. They are aiming to create an album that explores different elements of pop and electronic. Two Chapels are a gifted duo that will give New Yorkers an innovative electro pop sound. - I Heard In

"Two Chapels - Free You"

What's so good?
By Christiana Bartolini | March 18th, 2013

NYC’s two chapels are a female/male duo that are NYU-trained composers/producers. That alone was enough to pique my interest as to what they’ve created musically. Then I took a listen to their single, “Free You,” a synth and drum machine-drenched track

The overall feel of this song is haunting and chilled out, but I think the underlying message is a bit more daunting. As the track goes on, it keeps a steady, slithering beat while the warps synths swirl around the track, never letting up. The composition may sound simple, but if you listen more closely, there are layers of effects that come and go throughout the song.

two chapels have got a good grasp on the massive synthwave movement that’s taking over the music scene. And with their formal NYU training, I’m interested to see what else they have up their sleeves. - Indie Shuffle

"‘Two Chapels’ Love and Lust at First Sight and Sound"

I rarely ever get truly excited for a band with only a few songs to their belt. A debut release of an EP of three songs is interesting, but it is hard to really get a full idea of what is going on there. There is too much music in the world to get bent out of shape in a good or bad way over 2 songs. Before long, five years go by and those two songs still remain a rather odd little tease of what could have happened. The worst ones are forgotten (and hopefully deleted from BandCamp with an expiration date). The best ones are tantalizing and mysterious.

The latter explains the electro rock duo of ‘Two Chapels.’ It is sort of like love at first sight. It rarely ever happens, but we also think it does. I am still in the phase where I am completely head over heels in love with Two Chapels, but terribly confused over whether this is lust or love. This is my attempt to explore the future:


Lust is an adoration or obsession without any real substance outside of that. With that said, I love the style. Recalling Violator-era Depeche Mode, the orgasm-inducing hook of ‘Feel You’ seems tugged right from the outrageous mind of Dave Gahan. The songstress Jenn Grossman sings with such conviction, you feel the beauty in every note hit. The echoing effects chill and haunt, and only help to build the lustful and sexual nature of the song. It’s a dance track at heart, but one with pure class. You want to make love with it, but you aren’t sure you want to taint the pureness of the song. Is this exaggerated hyperbole? Probably, but isn’t that what lust is?


The question is startling- can you fall in love with a band? Can you fall in love with their collective discography of two songs? This could be just lust, and ‘What Are You Still Fighting For? makes the question all the more difficult. The track rides with such perplexing hook. It propels with a soft tender bubbling lead, and is accented with melancholy synth hooks. Prop this up to the production of the other chapel, Marc Wilhite. The nuances are polished and absolutely and ethereally flare from the speakers. The track recalls Massive Attack with greater fury that ‘Feel You.’ It seems like the group listened to Dummy just the right amount of times, not too many to be a downright copy but just enough to help establish their own concoction of atmospheric nuances. I could be in love. The track is so brilliantly composed; there should be no other option.

In the end, the question of love or lust can be solved by only one thing- time. As time continues, we will either witness a slew of exceptionally composed electronic beauty, or see a lot of nothing. In the end, it is all solved by the ultimate solver of all problems. But, it is very well possible to fall in love this quickly? From the sounds that rush from the speakers, it is only that small helping of cynicism that keeps me from telling everyone in the world, getting a tattoo, and announcing my love to ‘Two Chapels’ with all the sincerity I can muster. Hurry up time- I must know what I am fighting for. - The Levity Ball

"Two Chapels - Free You"

Emerging NYC duo Two Chapels (made up of Jenn Grossman and Marc Wilhite) have out their new song “Free You”. This mix of somber electro-pop is both haunting and danceable. Puts you in that sinister kind of mood, almost like a less intense version of Crystal Castles. We dig. - The Handclap Movement

"Two Chapels - Free You"

Well, I’ve got to hand it to the interwebs on this one… Thanks to the seemingly limitless ability to share literally everything with others around the world I’ve come across another emerging group of artists that I’m digging. New York City has always been a booming greenhouse for those in the creative community and Two Chapels is a clear byproduct of the city’s affluent fertility.

Their sound comes off as dark & romantic and their mix of somber synths and nostalgia influenced vocals puts them right on par with the likes of Crystal Castles, Purity Ring and M83. There’s a certain spectral beauty to their songs and I’m loving it — can’t wait to hear more from them the future, enjoy!

"Two Chapels – Free You"

Emerging New York based electronic duo Two Chapels have dropped a new track ‘Free You’ and it’s a bit good you know. Sensational in fact.

Their music was recently described by “Enthuzed Magazine” as “dark & romantic and their mix of somber synths and nostalgia influenced vocals puts them right on par with the likes of Crystal Castles, Purity Ring and M83. There’s a certain spectral beauty to their songs.”

I think they were on the money with that description. - Your Music Radar
