Chelan shares new single ‘Won’t Break’


Joshua Tree’s synth pop band Chelan have shared a second track, Won’t Break, from their upcoming album. Their upcoming full-length ‘Vultures’ is set for release August 26 via Something In Stereo. Won’t Break is a more luminous view inside of ‘Vultures’ compared the the darker Beams, which they shared last month. Take a listen to Won’t Break via Soundcloud below.

‘Vultures’ is Chelan’s most ambitious studio effort to date but they were also careful to ensure they can replicate the album during live performances. When asked about the writing process for Vultures’ Justin Hosford says “Its been a fun challenge morphing from the mostly electronic, subdued indie aesthetic of our last couple albums to the wall of sound, big production synth pop thing we went for on this record.” The album surrounds layered vocals with lush analog synths, guitar, drums, cello and piano. Chelan is currently planning a tour in the spring of 2017. ‘
