CHIMES explain about the EP,
“The EP captures a blend of creativity and escapism. The themes that run throughout - love, loss, frustration, life, happiness, hopes and dreams - bring meaning but also get you dancing. The title refers to the house number in which we wrote and recorded the majority of the EP!”
Surprisingly, the Ninety Four EP is their first body of work released together, but they have certainly made a bold statement with this EP, showcasing their incredible ability to make infectious dance pop tunes with effervescent electronics and accessible lyrics.
The duo formed in 2014, following speculative songwriting sessions. Since then, Draper and Aiden have been busy applying the skills acquired from working with global artists (Draper has written singles for Cheryl, Låpsley, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora and Little Mix, and Aiden has appeared as a featured artist on top releases worldwide) into making the kind of songs that they are both passionate about.
As CHIMES explain,
“There was space for something new, fresh and powerful to make a mark…hopefully our blend of indie rock combined with mainstream dance music continues to connect with people the way it has been doing at our gigs.”
Live, CHIMES put on an energetic show, creating a special experience that involves maximum audience participation. Their last gig was a sold out headline show at The Old Blue Last in London, and they expect to make an even bigger splash this year, proving that CHIMES are well on their way as becoming one of the most promising artists of 2017.
