After a brief hibernation, my Minneapolis-based rock outfit Chicane Theory is thawing out the winter’s cold with a new full-length album, Things Look Up Again, due out in May. The new tracks feature a broad range of vintage guitar tones from dissonant speaker-ripping fuzz to hauntingly beautiful tape echoes, dynamic drum beats, and accessible vocal melodies. The new disc has drawn comparisons to Foo Fighters, GBV, Pink Floyd and Jawbox to name a few.

Sirensofdecay.com said, "After the drop of each chorus, the verses lull you into this hypnotic spiral of guitar and vocals. It’s just rock and roll from another great Minneapolis outfit with no contrivance or pre-conceived bullshit. While it ain’t singing about sunshine and roses, Chicane Theory will still light up your ears in a hurry. You just gotta push play."
