“It wasn’t too long after The Great Explosion that we detected a signal coming from a black hole just outside our solar system. The Great Explosion left molten lava and burning embers across the Earth after an enormous underground volcano erupted. Earth was dying. The signal was coming from another world, one that was trying to communicate with us and save us from ourselves.
I had been a pilot in the Great War. I have degrees in mechanical, biological, and chemical engineering. After a strenuous series of tests, they proved I was capable and decided to send me alone to establish contact.
I had 3 days to say goodbye to my friends and family. The journey would take 5 years to the black hole and 5 years back.”
‘Mad Magic’ is the forthcoming single from New York based indie rock band CHAPPO and is due for release on Caroline International on 22nd January 2016. It’s the second single to be taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Future Former Self’, which is due out on 22nd January 2016.
The song’s positively upbeat and idiosyncratic vibe is intriguing considering its subject matter.
Rene Cogito has left his wife back home traveling to a black hole hoping to save mankind. 'Mad Magic' is a trip into the transparency of time as darkness surrounds Rene's field of vision. Vivid images, memories, and sensations overwhelm him as the constancy of the sun fades in his peripheral. When did that moment happen? Was it today, yesterday, or has it happened yet? Will he preserve his mental acuity or will madness creep into his psych?'
Rene’s journey is part of a surreal narrative that runs throughout the album, a cosmic body of work exploring the abstract nature of time and the experience it has on the perception of reality.
CHAPPO’s first single from this album ‘Hang On’ was well received and found early radio support from the likes of John Kennedy, Simon Raymond, Jim Gellatly and Charlie Ashcroft to name a few.
The band formed in the East Village of New York in 2009. Splitting the difference between the guitar-driven psychedelia of ‘60s west coast rock and the spiritual witch doctor moonshine of Dr. John, they tour constantly and have supported the likes of Of Montreal, Big Data, Imagine Dragons and The Flaming Lips. They will be touring the UK in early 2016, dates to be announced in due course.
CHAPPO’s music has featured in several syncs including ads for Apple iPod Touch, Macy’s and Sears and the TV series’ ‘90120’ HBO’s ‘Hung’ and NBC’s ‘Up All Night’.
