What we're listening to - Chapel Club

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

We love "O Maybe I", the second single by vaunted Dalston five-piece Chapel Club. We love the melancholic, slightly passive sentiment of its chorus. We love its languidly distorted guitars. We love lead singer Lewis Bowman's majestic polo neck and the way he looks a bit like Vincent Cassel crossed with Marc Almond.

We'd  also like to direct special praise to whoever designs their very elegant artwork, which may or may not be the doing of guitarist Michael Hibbert (an alleged natural history enthusiast).

"O Maybe I" is available as a limited 7" single through East City Records and www.chapelclub.com on 22 February. They're playing in Newcastle on 4 March and start a string of further UK dates from 7 April. Visit www.myspace.com/chapelclub for details.
