Chartreuse have released their debut single "Three Days," which is taken from their forthcoming first EP that is due out later this year via [PIAS] Recordings. You can listen to the track here and watch its accompanying video here.
Hailing from the UK, Chartreuse create richly-textured, loose-limbed, country-kissed soul music. In truth, it sounds unlike any of them, an unexpectedly furtive marrying of folk, soul, jazz, and R&B in its truest sense by a young band making their first steps.
Named after a color that supposedly cannot be seen when printed, Chartreuse find inspiration in the assorted works of Hans Zimmer and by long drives out of the city, daydreaming of future lazy studio sessions in the South of France. They all agree on assorted songs and records by Radiohead, Bon Iver, Ben Howard, and Sharon Van Etten, and agree to disagree on many others.
Recorded in Tottenham with producer Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode), "Three Days" is an elegiac hymn of an introduction to Chartreuse and a telling tone-setter for the eventual EP. Controlled by Michael’s husked baritone, "Three Days" sounds curiously both spacious but claustrophobic, unhurried yet vital.
Further details on the debut EP will be announced soon.
Chartreuse are: Harriet Wilson (vocals/piano), Michael Wagstaff (vocals/guitar), Perry Lovering (bass), and Rory Wagstaff (drums).
