Street Chant Announce New Album + Video

Thursday 27th August, 2015 10:30AM

Street Chant have announced details for their long-awaited sophomore album and simultaneously unveiled a new video for lead single 'Pedestrian Support League'. Titled Hauora, the upcoming record is the first full-length offering from the Auckland trio since 2010 debut Means, and is slated for release in November via Arch Hill/Flying Nun.

Speaking about 'Pedestrian Support League', frontwoman Emily Littler says the song is loosely about Auckland life. "Coming back from being on tour a lot and moving back into a crummy flat in Grey Lynn I felt an extreme sense of ennui amongst my peers and especially in myself. A few years ago I had felt excitement for the future and now I was paranoid my flatmates were stealing all my margarine". She adds that the chorus expresses the amusement and dissatisfaction she felt with her surroundings. "Amusement because I felt like I was living out some “food for flatties” cookbook cliche, but watching National win another election as well my seemingly endless ability to stagnate bought about an extreme sense of apathy".
