Pure British Pop from Twangtown: Chadwick Station - Waiting For A Sunny Day

From Britain by way of Nashville, TN comes Chadwick Station... though you'd certainly be able to guess the former from the sound of Waiting For A Sunny Day, their debut 5-song EP. Lead vocalist Alvis Kensington's got a Paul/Ringo thing going on the vocals - in fact, his mannered style reminds me, in places, of Ian Anderson. The band relocated from Great Britain to Nashville to work with pop/rock veteran Bill Cuomo.

This is not lo-fi indie rock or dream pop, this is radio-friendly Beatles-influenced (by way of 70's radio) pop music. I'd say if Abbey Road was your favorite Beatles album, and you yearn for simple, sunny pop music that can take you back to that place and time, this may be right up your alley.

Here's "High And Low", a pretty good example of what they're up to:

It's out now on Englishwood Records, and you can learn more at the Chadwick Station Website.

All I can say is WOW! Where have these guys been?!? Okay, I see they're brand new and this is their first EP but WOW! I've found my favorite new band.

I must admit that I thought the flame of great music had been extinguished by auto-tuned technopop. Then, through the fog of redundancy and mediocrity emerges a band playing instruments as they were intended to be played. With melodious harmonies to boot. Chadwick Station IS the keeper of the flame!
