Melbourne, Australia band Chook Race formed in 2010, starting out as a scrappy, garage/surf band, but soon developed a greater pop sensibility, born of their love of the Flying Nun bands and other bedroom favorites. After a string of tapes and 7’s Chook Race self-released their debut LP ‘About Time’ in 2015. They now return with a new album ‘Around The House', due for release on September 2nd through Chicago's Trouble in Mind Records (Tenth Court will release the album in AU, NZ & Japan).

The ten songs on “Around The House” are oddly withdrawn yet highly personal tunes, but performed by the band with a desperate urgency. Songs like the immediate & catchy “Hard To Clean” & “Sometimes” clang & clatter like chrome-plated pop earworms, while others like the somber “Pink & Grey” and album-closer “Start Anew” hum pensively, quietly insinuating themselves into your subconscious. Before you know it, you’ll be humming each one non-stop. Captured in a single day by Tom Hardisty (NUN, Woollen Kits) and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) the album has a compelling sound defined by jangly guitars, boy-girl harmonies, and lyrical observations of the everyday.

RIYL: The Clean, Parquet Courts, Courtney Barnett, Dick Diver, Go-Betweens, Elf Power, R.E.M.
