Chapel Club have returned with the first taste of their upcoming second album, ditching the gloom-rock sound for a more upbeat and fresh style including samples and electronics. 

The London band released their debut album ‘Palace’ in 2011 and will release its follow up, titled ‘Good Together’ later this year. Speaking about their radical change in sound, band member Lewis Bowman explains: “These four songs (like the album entire) are pretty different from our old stuff, and we realise that may disappoint some of our fans. We didn’t aim to mess with anyone’s hopes or expectations, but we also knew we couldn’t keep doing this if we had to spend another 18 months writing and playing The Big Music. “
Adding: “We formed and were signed so quickly that we never really talked about what kind of band we wanted to be. So while it was amazing that lots of people embraced the music, and while we knew it had its strengths, we also knew we wanted to approach the second record in a different spirit.”
You can stream four songs from Chapel Club’s second album below, and download the single ‘Sleep Alone’ for free too.
