Stockholm-based trio CHANCVN recently made a splendid debut with a positively dramatic single “Heart Out”, which has now received a “hysteric” video treatment.
This first piece from CHANCVN shows that although the band’s deep into retromania – clearly influenced by now-classic alternative groups from the 1990s – they put lots of thought into their compositions to keep away from obvious.
Vanja Steinholtz’s vivid voice is an immediate distinguishing feature of their sound, but your attention will gradually move to the transparent and at the same time full playing of Sandra Karlsson (on guitars) and Jesper Svensson (on drums).
“It’s an embarassing confession of admiration, dependence and dazzling love to someone. It’s not a very flattering portrait of the self,” the band said about “Heart Out”. “But then it’s stupid to stay chill to the point of madness.”
