The Chats

Thursday, March 22

Picture this: you’re making music with your mates, and you’ve just put out one of your first EPs. It’s only racked up a handful of streams, but you’re already on the verge of hitting the big time.

How does that happen? By going viral, of course; something which happened to Sunny Coast slacker punks The Chats last year after having just released their second EP.

Out of seemingly nowhere, their track Smoko (which is taken from July’s Get This in Ya EP) spread like wildfire across the web and expanded their reach well away from the pub stages they frequent.

Writers and interviewers have described it as “the most Aussie thing ever”, and we agree with this sentiment so much that we decided to dig a little deeper.

Smoko is the sound of a band who honestly seem like they don’t give a flying fuck (they might, but who knows?), and even though the undertones surrounding it are largely sarcastic and comedic, there’s certainly potential for them to capitalize on the success of the viral hit they unknowingly bestowed unto the planet.

We might be clutching at straws now, but we hear promise in their pub punk madness. Whether you like it or not, The Chats may just have become the latest viral sensation to set the DIY scene alight. Hit up their Bandcamp for more tunes and be sure to buy a record so that you can contribute to their beer funds.
