Means 12"

Street Chant

Street Chant release their debut album Means on Vinyl/CD/MP3 in New Zealand on 23rd August 2010.

Careening, tuneful and bolshie as all hell. The debut they, and we, deserve 4/5 Stars – Joe Nunweek - Real Groove

'Means' displays a refreshing absence of the usual tiresome indie-pop pussyfooting...
'Blister' and 'Your Philosophy' are such a perfectly-judged collisions of mania and melody, you could be listening to the Buzzcocks, but fast and loud are not this band’s only setting;

Stoned Again slows down and stretches out into an unusually insightful song about young people taking drugs to escape suburban boredom. Elsewhere the warm waves of guitar distortion recall Dinosaur Jnr., The Pixies and Sonic Youth, but the band's free noise enthusiasms are marshalled by a strong pop sensibility throughout. 4/5 Stars – Grant Smithies – Sunday Star Times

In a year littered with releases from great New Zealand bands, it kinda looks like Auckland three-piece Street Chant topped them all. James Beavis - Salient
