Chappaqua Wrestling release new track ‘The Rift’
The latest track from Brighton born band Chappaqua Wrestling reveals their darker grunge side. It follows the release of ‘Football’ earlier this year, and whilst the songs both were released in the midst of a pandemic, they offer extremely different vibes – much like 2020 as a whole.
‘The Rift’ features a constant guitar in the background, mirroring what feels to be white noise. It’s dark, with intimidating guitar riffs over each section ready to make your skin crawl. Lead singer Charlie Woods offers much more suppressed vocals to their previous material, which may even fit into the inspiration for the song. Lyrically, the song was inspired by the famous poem ‘The Masque of Anarchy’ by none other than Percy Bysshe Shelley. It explores the deep oppression in society, so the suppressed vocals fit nicely into this.
Chappaqua Wrestling demonstrate their talent for songwriting in their ability to switch between upbeat and mysterious, without creating any rift at all.
A teen with a major love for all things music. I’m in an unhealthy relationship with my guitar which sometimes leads to me being the one on the stage… oh, and I love a good sing-a-long to anything, but The Wombats and Catfish and the Bottlemen will always have a special place in my heart.
