“I am the most proud of these lyrics out of all of our tracks to date” – Tyler Heaney (VOX/Guitar/Songwriter)
Review by Callum Vickers
Nottingham’s own Brit-pop rock n’ rollers The Chase are back following the recent release of their single ‘Death of Me’ on Golden Robot Records.
‘Set the World to Rights’ is the band’s latest offering. It comes in the form of an interestingly ballad-esque styled track that strays from their usual rough and ready structure. The Chase describe (rather accurately might I add) the track as being a mix of The Beatles, The Bee Gees and Morrissey.
Tyler Heaney, who is the frontman and lead vocalist for The Chase describes ‘Set the World to Rights’ as “our best song yet.” He goes on to say, “I am the most proud of these lyrics out of all of our tracks to date. The song was inspired by classic ballads such as ‘Nobody Loves You’ by John Lennon, ‘Only You Know’ by Dion (not our Dion) and ‘This Guy’s in Love with You’ by Burt Bacharach, but with a real modern feel. The song lyrically is a tale of two sides – the verses speaking about hard times and loneliness but the chorus speaking about finding someone and changing your perspective. It reflects on a particular time in my own life and is a very personal song.”
Inspired by the streets from which they were raised, The Chase came to exist at a young age, with Tyler Heaney (Vocals), his younger brother Dion (Drums) and their cousin Luke Childs (Bass) picking up their instruments at the ages of 10, 8 and 11 respectively. Schoolmate James Cahill (Keys) joined later on to take the family trio to a quartet and really complete the band. With their music having been featured on Hollyoaks and BBC Introducing it goes to show that their hard work since an early age has really paid off.
‘Set the World to Rights’ is available now on all digital platforms.
