Seattle band, and firm Far Out favourites, Chastity Belt have released the second track from their forthcoming LP I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone which is out on June 2nd on Hardly Art Records. The new track ‘Caught in a Lie’ following on from ‘Different Now’ is another stone-cold classic from Chazzy Belt.
The band are starting to really craft out their own style and own vision. It’s something that many artists strive for and never achieve but Chastity Belt have managed to do it in a seemingly short time. Adding flecks of pop in to their otherwise Americana-dripping indie sound, the band have molded themselves and found their audience. Us.
What makes it even nicer is that they have done this without any corporate preparation or direction. They are four girls who have found a way to express themselves, clearly and cleanly, without the mess of multi-channelled bullshit. They share an intimacy and authenticity that only genuine bands can.
And they’ve got a bloody UK tour. Dates below the stunning new single.
