What happens when you put four guys from the Chicago art-rock scene into a band together? Chandeliers. What do they sound like? Well, using sound machines and synthesizers, Chandeliers describe their sound as "shimmering, beach-ready electronic jams" and listening to their tracks one can't argue with that. Attempting to identify the origin of their sound one is forced to think of Krautrockers, post-disco dream teams, and funk kings, but one thing is certain, this Chicago quartet has a sound all unto their own. Garnering positive reviews for their past three albums from the likes of XLR8R, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and The Wire, Chandeliers is a group to keep your eyes and ears on.
