London via Manchester indie/alt band Chappaqua Wrestling release their debut album ‘Plus Ultra‘ today and have aired the video for their latest single “Need You No More“.
The band have always stuck to a sound that goes for the jugular, ensuring that Plus Ultra has the strength to take its own advice: be brave, ask questions, and don’t fear the unknown.
As they say, “Talking is our generation’s saviour” and Plus Ultra is an album with much to get off its chest.
About the album they say:
“Plus Ultra documents the journey through our friendship, from school to where we now find ourselves commenting on what is around us. Roughly translating to ‘Nothing Lies Beyond’, a Latin naval term adopted by those exploring uncharted waters, we present a collection of our best works to date, each lyrically distinct but venturing into new territories that life presents; mass media, Tory austerity, mental health, homelessness, the deprived NHS and the release that music gives you from it all. Come with us to make sense of what lies beyond in this world through questions, power and statements that we stand by.”
Of the song, the band said: “Its message gets close to a love song, but its oxymoron-laced lyrics and rawness gave us the hedonistic release that we needed. Sometimes it’s more difficult to switch off than to stay on, so ecstatically enjoying the present moment when we can is something we should all celebrate.“
