Album of the Week: Grian Chatten – Chaos For The Fly

New Zealand Net Radio plays a song from our irregularly updated #albumoftheweek every hour from 9am to 12pm. Listen in @tunein at

This album came a bit out of the blue for us (and that’s not intended as a terrible pun on the cover) although one track had crossed our radar recently. This is a superb atmospheric singer-songwriter from the UK, slightly Sam Fender-ish at moments but definitely with his own sonic pallette and style. The singer from well known band Fontaines D.C. we love his unadorned Cumbrian accent. Its hard to better Pitchfork‘s summary (even if they’re obsessed with his Fontaine’s background rather than taking this album on its own terms): “Chatten has made a bold claim here as a folk auteur, whose classical songwriting and tender, veracious touch resonates now and into the past.”
