The Chakras, The Arkhamists
Led by brothers Rocky and Gordo Whittaker, The Chakras are hell bent on writing music that evokes reaction. Raised on a diet of Storm In Heaven era Verve self-belief, and Jesus and Mary Chain’s wanton fuzz, the band took an early hazy blueprint of how they wanted to sound and immediately removed anything that might interfere with their creating of it. They resigned from the day-jobs, moved to London, signed to Planet Function Records and have here made a record that took those noisy, hissing 8-track bedroom demos and transformed the very same songs into swirling, guitar-heavy anthems.
