Chaika are a mature band boasting a diverse set rich with intricately written songs. On stage, a lo-fi shoegaze edge provides the perfect foundation for a charismatic frontman to throw forward truly distinctive vocal lines full of rhythm and flare. The band have recently self-released a cassette featuring tracks Scream Back/Coming Home and White Hare. Despite acting as the B-side, White Hare showcases the bands more traditional writing abilities, with the A-side highlighting their darker, more psychedelic sound. After playing a series of gigs across Manchester, Leeds and London, Chaika are certainly an exciting prospect for 2015.
