Japan’s CHAI have always made intriguing pop music that is full of energy and words that most of us don’t understand. Of course, that doesn’t mean that they’re not a fun addition to the Burger Records roster. Now, with their second record ready for deployment, they’ve given us two new tracks to delve into ahead of Punk, their new album due in March.
While the first single, “Great Job” dropped in November, it just means some have had more time to digest it. Full of energy and pop structures, the track is fun and fuzzy while the video embodies much of what the foursome has become known for.
The second song, “FASHIONISTA” has a more dark and pulsating vibe. Showing off more depth to the group than their typical upbeat pop fare, the song is definitely one that you’ll remember with its disco undertones and almost anthemic chorus.
You can stream both tracks above all you’d like or you can preorder Punk on multiple formats directly from Burger Records before its release date of March 15. CHAI will be on tour starting at SXSW in Austin March 11 through March 17, then in Washington, D.C. at Union Stage until March 30 at Holocene in Portland. A complete list of their tour dates can be found here.
