The Chapman Family: Adult

  I had barely heard of the Chapman Family, let alone listened to their music. That changed right fucking quick when the video for their new single, “Adult”, landed in my inbox. Funnily enough, when I was opening the e-mail, the name of the band led me to think this was going to be another innocuous Americana folk group, but if you are familiar with the Chapman Family, you know that description is the antithesis of their sound.   “Adult” – The Chapman Family   Angry Brits were one of my first loves, musically speaking, and the Chapman Family remind me of the post-punk titans of my youth, but they aren’t a bloodless reenactment group. They sound vital. They sound necessary. The Chapman Family’s second full-length album is scheduled for release in the fall, and they’ll launch a UK tour early next month.
