Welcome to the Post aPOPylpse… Chaselounge in 2015.
Chaselounge, the Cincinnati power pop band that made a name for itself crafting catchy airtight pop for over a decade finds itself working on its 4th (yet to be titled) release.
Once again, primary songwriters Shawny Scott and Aaron Scott are putting on their pop lab coats and doing what they do best-crafting smart quirky pop songs that have both a timeless feel and are devoid of trend. No need to break musical ground here- instead just litter it with songs built to stand the test of time.
A lot has changed since the 2010 release of “Hush of Sound.” The band scaled back on live performances. Weddings were held, babies were born, and longtime guitarist Chris Lambert left the band in 2013 to pursue other musical endeavors. During that time however, songwriting was always taking place, and 2015 finds Shawny, Aaron, and drummer Adam Eilers working on material for their fourth album. The songs are classic Chaselounge, and draw upon the bands influences and experiences since they formed in 2002. Below, frontman Shawny Scott sheds some light on the new songs that will make up the next album:
“We could call this album “The Great Incubation Period” or “Let it Simmer” - applicable titles for sure. Aaron and I have been working on over 20 songs that in many ways have the feel of a band’s first album. When we first released “Mayday, Roger the Radio” in 2004, the songs on that album were written over a long period. We had the luxury of time, and were able to work on songs in many ways we had spent our entire life writing. When you’re in a band, once you release your first album, you don’t have as much time and experience to draw upon for the next album and the next one after that. The writing period becomes shorter, and it’s harder to gain perspective on your songwriting. It harder to see what’s working and what’s not. This time around, we rediscovered that luxury of time. Because we’re working on so many songs, we’re able to work on a song, leave it for a while, then come back to it with fresh ears. It’s great, because it enables us to get outside of the song and hear what’s working and what’s not working. It’s a process that takes time, but in the end produces the best possible results.”
