CHICO - Split EP Review (2017)

Welcome! Today’s offering in “What’s New in Music” is a four-piece psychedelic garage band out of Nashville Tennessee called “CHICO”.

“CHICO” just released a two song “split EP” with the progressive rock band called “Phobos” on July 28th, 2017 that should wake a few ears by its outstanding creativeness. The music certainly deserves a closer look / listen by music fans and radio DJ’s, and so, here it is, under the World United Music spotlight on “What’s New in Music”.

CHICO’s 2 song “Split EP”

The opening song, “Twilight Ravine” is a real trip of a tune that comes out of nowhere to pick up your rock sensors with its driving beat, guitar rhythms and refreshing leads. One listen wont be enough as the song picks up your consciousness and merges your being with music euphoria through its subtle psychedelic changes that will have your mind speeding down roads, surfing the waves and travelling through space. “Twilight Ravine” is food for the mindful music starved and an excellent song that should jump start the band out of the gates to a wider audience. “Twilight Ravine” is certainly on this DJ’s playlist!

The second song, “Prayers for the family” is a unique tune that demonstrates the bands mastery of its garage rock roots. The song combines its signature garage sound with a seemingly slowed down punk rock beat as a carrier that borders on Pop but changes with a twist of psychedelic fusion to round out this excellent song and “Split EP”.  

I have “Twilight Ravine” and “Prayers for the Family” already mixed and playing on my car’s CD player…ok, so I have an old car but I love the music blasting from its speakers. 😉

Check out CHICO’s two song EP below and then go over to the bands facebook page and give them a, thumbs up. Better still, pick up the bands music on Bandcamp and then go over to Facebook and give them the thumbs up.

Be sure to share this post with your network of friends and fans so that we can get this music revolution started!
