Emerging from New York City's East Village in 2009, CHAPPO has since created an army of loyal followers, attending their sets for an array of cool slow jams and striking live performances. The quartet houses a blend of composed harmonies, psychedelic guitar rock, and the occasional disco surge to deliver an addicting and sway worthy index of tracks.
Each of CHAPPO’s influences has a place on their new EP Celebrate, via Votiv Music, due December 9. The four featured tracks show the palette of CHAPPO and the complexity of styles they have to offer. “I’m Not Ready” kicks things off with an accelerated drum pulse, but “Timeline” is the icing on the cake, with its west coast vibe and playful tempo changes throughout the pleasing five minute endeavor. CHAPPO is set to release their second LP Future Former Self in 2015, with Celebrate fully holding us over until then.
