They’re from the grimmest reaches of Britain’s industrial north, yet are as influenced by David Lynch as by Joy Division. Meet The Chapman Family, the angsty rockers with something interesting to say beyond the usual provincial mooching.
The Chapman Family are no ordinary noiseniks. Clap an ear to their debut album Burn Your Town, and you might pick up on everything from Fugazi-style hardcore to Mogwai dynamics, but scratch the surface and you'll also hear strains of film score maestros like Morricone and Badalamenti.
Burn Your Town is out now on PIAS/Electric Toaster. You can listen to 'Anxiety' on hotpress.com now.
