The track follows the outfit’s promising debut release ‘No Other Way’.
Midlands outfit Chasers are rapidly gaining attention for their thoughtful and calculated brand of laid-back, guitar driven indie rock. Their debut release ‘No Other Way’ did a great job of establishing this sound, in a dreamy and often hook-driven manner not similar to local contemporaries Riscas.
Latest release ‘We’re Going Backwards’ continues to demonstrate the potential that the outfit possess, weaving a deliberated paced tale of life in lockdown and among uncertainty. The track continues to demonstrate the capabilities of a young outfit who are still finding their feet and sound, but have a keen eye for a hook and surely have bigger things yet to come.
“I wanted to channel all this negativity and anxiety I was experiencing at the time and turn it into somewhat of a positive, which I feel as though I’ve achieved with We’re Going Backwards.” James Oliver of Chasers has said. “The song is a reminder of how far we’ve come since then and whilst we might not yet be fully healed, you feel as though there is more of a unity and togetherness with people”.
