Chook Race

Chook Race are Matthew, Carolyn and Rob. They are from Melbourne, Australia.  They play guitar music of the pop variety. They like a good time. 

Forming in 2010, the band started out as a scrappy garage surf band, but soon developed a greater pop sensibility, born of their love of the Flying Nun bands and other bedroom favourites. After a string of of tapes and 7’s they self released the debut LP ‘About Time’ in 2015. They now now return with new LP  ‘Around The House’,  which is due for release in September through Trouble in Mind and Tenth Court. The songs are oddly withdrawn yet highly personal. Captured in a single day by Tom Hardisty (NUN, Woollen Kits) and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) the album has an urgent simplicity. The sound is defined by jangly guitars, boy-girl harmonies and lyrical observations of the everyday.
