Joh Chase - "Gone"

We cover a lot of artists that tend to live in between the worlds of indie rock and folk, but no one is doing it quite like Joh Chase. Their latest single, "Gone," would fit in with many other artists in the genre such as Big Thief, but there's just something about Chase that keeps their sound unique. It's somehow more folk and more indie rock at the same time. The song starts off in that modern, Newport Folk Festival inspired folk style that's fairly rock adjacent, but the bass line has a much sharper edge than you'd expect. The song slowly builds step by step until it's an indie rock banger, while still keeping the basics that made you love the song to begin with.

Joh Chase says of their musical background:

“My brain is completely filled with the music I was raised on: Elton John, The Cranberries, Bonnie Raitt, and the Mamas and the Papas. I will always think of my music through that template while trying to find a place for myself in the world and pushing the boundaries of that.”  

You can watch the video for "Gone" below. SOLO is due out April 26 on Kill Rock Stars, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Joh Chase, check out the artist's website.
