Now, the group has returned with a strong two-song single release, with the band’s Mike Kegler citing artists like The Raveonettes and Sigur Ros as influences. Check out “I Guess” (previously featured on CVU last summer as a live performance) and the more introspective “A Consideration” as a download link and stream below. And look for summer show announcements from the group soon.
A number of new videos from The Missing Chums have hit the web. First up is the official clip for UK-influenced act’s track “Moving Target,” featuring live performance footage and taken from the band’s Out Of The Gates offering. Also from that album is the similarly performance footage based treatment for “Jailbird.” Finally, a live, handclap-led video for the band’s production “I Guess” completes the collection. Find all three clips below.
