The Chase - Not The F*cking Game Show
Metropolitan and melodic, The Chase's music is a blend of cultural influences that pays tribute to their council estate roots. In the space of a few short years, the five-piece have amassed a dedicated fanbase that has propelled them into the stratosphere of the UK indie music scene. From debut performances at some of the best UK festivals (The Great Escape, Isle of Wight, Y Not, Truck, Splendour), to sold out nationwide tours & landing main support slots with The Kaiser Chiefs, Reverend & The Makers, The Rifles and more. The lads have been tipped as one of the biggest breakthrough bands on the scene by press, promoters, radio & anyone who see's them live.
Formed in their pre-teens, the multi-instrumentalists have a multicultural background that has inspired their sound. Brothers Tyler (songwriter/frontman) & Dion (drums) were born and raised in Nottingham with Scottish and Caribbean heritage. The Chase are a melting pot of the musical genres that the boys were exposed to when growing up. With cousin Luke on the bass, co-writer James on keys and synth duties and long time friend Will on 2nd guitar, the result is a sound that is both uniquely British and undeniably infectious.
From The Beatles to Oasis & The Specials to Damien Marley, if you listen to the music you will hear the unmistakable impact their upbringing has had on their songwriting and performance. As a frontman Tyler is equal parts rugged, glam and real. By day he is a labourer on a building site, but by night he is on stage in a leopard print shirt bringing out strong Marc Bolan vibes that draw in any audience. He best describes his fashion sense as "Champagne taste with a lemonade budget" - which is the most accurate thing we have ever heard. "Our live show is theatrical, full of personality & showmanship, I couldn't do it any other way. We want to get the crowd involved, we love it when they're singing the tunes back at us, it's all part of the experience for us and them."
