Chalk Unleash New Single/Video "Claw"

Belfast post-punk/electronic risers Chalk have unleashed their new single “Claw” alongside an accompanying video.

The track, produced by Chris Ryan (NewDad, Enola Gay, Just Mustard) and bandleader Ross Cullen, features on their upcoming EP ‘Conditions II’, due to be release on March 1st via Nice Swan Records. Pre-order it here.

Fresh from winning ‘Best Live Act’ at NI Music Prize 2023, Chalk relentless ascent continues to gather thrilling pace. Inspired by the ferocity and live performance of Dublin’s guitar scene, coupled with the sweaty, hardcore dance landscape in their native Belfast, Chalk have already sold out multiple dates throughout the UK and Europe in the last twelve months. With 2024 promising to become even busier on the live front, the three-piece are primed to head stateside for their debut appearance at SXSW in March, before their biggest UK headline tour to date later that month.

Speaking ahead of their second EP reveal, enigmatic bandleader Ross Cullen explained:

Claw is about falling in love inside a nightmare. There’s a mixture of loss and relief that we wanted to capture. Subconscious feelings are at the crux of most of our tracks – something that we started on Conditions EP. We still feel like we’re in that universe of figuring ourselves out as people and using our sonic palette to make sense of it. There’s still a few feelings we want to explore and staying in the world of Conditions is something we’ve grown to enjoy – we don’t want to leave just yet”.
