The space of pop music is ever-growing. It can become overwhelming for any rising band looking to carve out their piece of the pie. Shifting through the daily grind of pop machine music can drive anyone insane. Yet, among the rubble, there seems to be hope for the expanding music genre. Alt-pop duo Chapel is here to add a much-needed dose of serotonin to your playlist. The one-two-punch of Carter Hardin and Kortney Grinwis pack more than enough to keep you waiting in the wings. As Chapel looks to usher in a new era of their music, we can happily tag along for the ride.
Aside from their 2019 hit single, “Friends,” their last piece of music was back in 2017. It was then where Chapel released their debut album Sunday Brunch. The album plays out like a budding 2005 rising pop. Upon first listen, the album hits at various memories that had once been kept locked. Chapel’s music and energy are unmatched. Everything is bright and colorful. Their music and visuals are the embodiment of living life to the best of your ability. Simply put, it’s music that makes you feel good and ready to conquer the world. At the end of the day, it’s that what music is for?
Chapel released their EP, Room Service, earlier this year. It’s their first project since Sunday Brunch. It shows Chapel hasn’t missed a step as the 4 track project opens with “Pillow Talk.” The use of heavily influenced bass provides the groundwork for some raw emotion. On “Miss the Days,” Chapel produces their most unique sound. With faint moments of haunting tones, the overall song tries not to take itself too seriously. Chapel is a band you can’t get enough of. The band is on the fast track to pop stardom.
