ESNS: 2024
Chalk is the three-piece project of award winning musicians and filmmakers Ross Cullen, Benedict Goddard, and Luke Niblock. The band formed after they met whilst studying film and realised they shared the same musical vision and ambitions. Inspired by the ferocity and live performance of Dublins Guitar Band scene, and informed by the sweaty hardcore dance scenes of their native Belfast (the breeding ground for acts like electronic duo BICEP), the band are IDLES meets Daniel Avery, Death Grips meets Bicep - techno-infused gothic post-punk. The trio sprung out of the gates live, supporting London's PVA in for their first ever shows, before selling out dates across the UK, performing on the European Festival circuit and ending the year with a stunning performance at the legendary Rencontres Trans Musicales and a KEXP session, due out in early March 2024. With the release of their debut EP 'Conditions', the band interweave their industrial noise/techno hybrid soundscape and the monochromatic gothic visual landscape they have created for themselves in an evocative and seamless manner. Chalk have begun work on their second project with producer Chris Ryan (NewDad, Just Mustard, Enola Gay), which they will release via Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, English teacher)
