Chaser 8 ...New Haven, Connecticut rock quintet, Chaser Eight, is a melodic, alternative rock outfit that released their first studio LP, Chaser Eight, on February 17, 2015. The group boasts bluesy and richly expressive vocals, mesmerizingly textured guitar playing, and a dynamic and imaginative rhythm section. Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs lead with soulful female vocals. Since the age of ten, singer, *AUDRA*, and guitarist, Pat Walsh, have been writing songs together and released their first EP, Late Night Companions, in 2012 followed by EPs Up and Up and At the 426 in 2013. The band writes about relatable subject matter - darkness, love, loss, partying, and sex - inviting listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics.
"A GENRE LIKE ROCK CARRIES WITH IT, A LAYER OF FOUNDING POWER. NOT A LABEL THAT CHANNELS THOUGHTS OF SEVERE SUB-GENRE DERIVATION, (THINK OF A PURE COLOR OF BLUE, AS OPPOSED TO A CERULEAN, ROYAL OR DENIM BLUE.) OFTEN TIMES FINDING A BAND THAT TURNS TO THIS CORNERSTONE STYLE OF SOUND CAN FEEL LIKE A COMING HOME –A CLASSIC THAT PROMPTS A CERTAIN KIND OF FAMILIARITY AND LEAVES ITS FANS HOPING FOR THE MUSIC TO EVOKE A PARTICULAR EMOTIONAL AND NOSTALGIC RESPONSE, SANS AN EXCESS OF PREDICTABILITY. A BAND THAT CHOOSES TO IDENTIFY WITH – AND PERPETUATE THE TORCH OF – SUCH A BASE LINE STYLE, IS DEALING WITH A FORKED ROAD OF STARKLY CONTRASTING AND SENSITIVE PROPORTIONS."
