From what I heard so far from this Santa Monica band, Chief’s music is pretty impressive. It Is highlighted by their new single “Night and Day” off of their upcoming album Modern Ritual (Domino). It has a very haunting, atmospheric quality—kind of sounds like Coldplay. The band members are Evan Koga, Mike Moonves and Danny and Michael Fujikawa: they are former NYU students. Chief will be playing the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday and Union Pool on Sunday.
