Coming off the back of a big finish to 2017 road-tripping the east-coast of Aus, I Know The Chief are gearing up to keep the van rolling in 2018. Having cut their teeth supporting the likes of Miami Horror, Gang Of Youths, Sublime, Panama, Clubfeet and Yacht Club DJ's - as well as playing both the 2015 and 2016 Beyond The Valley festivals - the boys can't wait to get back out on the road this year.

Releasing a string of singles over the past 4 years including 'Stay Coloured', which has amassed over 1 million plays online, and more recently 'Miami' (250,000+ plays on Spotify), I Know The Chief have just released their latest effort 'Saudade'.

Impressed by that rippling psych break. This band have kicked it up a notch with a whole new set of toys.

Can't deny the bop in this one and I'm hearing an interesting cross between Miami Horror and "Busy Earnin'" by JUNGLE! Both acts were huge a few years back so now I think it's really about how you can take those influences into 2018 and turn it into something totally fresh. Keep at it.
