The Chap are nuts, right? They’re so weird that even guys who are pretty weird themselves think The Chap are weird. They don’t look like they play in a band! Weird. They’re almost in their 40s! Weird. Their music is a hectic hybrid of almost everything that ever happened in modern western society, which means it’s really poppy but also quite screechy and detached and has really weird lyrics about cloning oneself and getting positive feedback from one’s boss. Weird. But after almost ten years of weirding everybody out over the course of hundreds of intense live shows, four albums and even a Best Of Compilation, The Chap have finally let their sensitive side get the better of them, resulting in their distinctly melancholy fifth album. Written, recorded and produced by the band in London and Berlin over the first half of 2011, „We Are Nobody“ is the most unified sounding Chap album to date. It contains 11 beautiful statements of loss, dislocation, nostalgia and defeat, mostly in a traditional pop song format and embedded in a surprisingly soothing and restrained sonic environment.
