The Gorgeous Chans ‘By The Highway’

Beautifully nostalgic tropical-indie track from Nottingham based group, The Gorgeous Chans. Such an evocative sound palette of sparkling guitars, fresh vocals, distant harmonies, shuffling drums and summery brass. The band were apparently inspired by Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ and you can hear some of that in here but also there’s that youthful student-folk vibe of Stornoway but asif Johnny Burrell had joined as vocalist and penned something a bit more deeper and thoughtful than Razorlight songs. Its sunfilled and sentimental and perfectly balanced.
