CHEW – Atlanta, Ga, USA, Earth, Milky Way, Etc.




3D EP picked for Creative Loafing’s Best of 2016


Brett Reagan (guitar/electronics), Snare-uh Wilson (drums) and Brandon Pittman (bass) make up CHEW, the psychedelic outfit from Atlanta, Ga.

This project features 3 familiar faces of the Atlanta music scene.  These humans have mutated into this trio after playing with bands in the city for years.

We use a sampler and analog synth mashed with live instrumentation to pull influences from all things psychedelic.  The result is a hypnotic, electronic, spacewave experience.


Press

“Atlanta trio CHEW never fail to go all out. Their music is marked by a boundless energy and an aggressive willingness to both genre jump and experiment with timing, pacing, and rhythm… like a poppier, less abstract Battles.” 

-Immersive Atlanta

Chew is a band best served live, with a grandiose stage presence that knows no boundaries. Lyrics are for chumps in a band like this, and they kept the audience enthralled and cheering during every bit of their wild, instrumental ride. They were magnificent to the millionth degree and, without a doubt, one of the best and most alluring damn bands on the planet.”

-iheartlocalmusic.com

“With less than 10 minutes of music made public on the group’s Bandcamp page, CHEW shows quite a bit of promise. The trio produces agile and fuzz-laden psych jams that veer into deeply heady territories, including everything from prog and acid rock to funk and downbeat.”

-Creative Loafing (ATL)

“There’s a psychedelic core to CHEW… but that doesn’t come close to defining them completely — there’s also a lot of jazz, a lot of noise… a lot of drifting, ambient music, and even some hints of doom-y metal lurking in the background… all of which melds together into these strange, heavy, amazing, very cinematic little musical scenes. Guitarist Brett Reagan, bassist Brandon Pittman, and drummer Sarah Wilson have crafted a masterpiece of experimental, intelligent, murky music that moves like a freaking tidal surge, shifting and changing beneath your feet just when you think you’ve got your feet firmly on the rocks below.”

-Space City Rock (Houston, TX)

“Is there anyone out there who is still genuinely weird? The answer is yes, and their name is CHEW. Deep from within the heart of Atlanta, the funky trio stands out in a crowd of weirdos… the band oozes eccentricity in the most casual way.”

-The Crimson White (Tuscaloosa, AL)

“Chew haven’t been playing together for very long, but already the Atlanta trio has carved out a particularly strange sound that’s hard to pin down. On their accurately titled single “Melt,” for example, the band glide between spaced-out psych rock, glitchy electronic music and acid jazz in the space of five minutes without breaking a sweat.

-Weld for Birmingham

“Their music can be as exasperating as it is exhilarating, and if you’re looking to pin them down to a particular genre, good luck. The band is just as likely to blast off into a cosmic prog rock jam as they are to abandon themselves to an acid jazz freakout or drift into a downbeat stupor. If you want to reach for an umbrella term, experimental certainly fits, although it’s not all that helpful in describing the sort of heady ruckus these three local vets create together.”  

-Immersive Atlanta

“…a hypnotically psychedelic trio of sonic experimentalists… is something entirely new and different—fusing acid rock, experimental music, and hard-driving fuzz—and it’s ensnared audiences”

-Connect Savannah

“…laden with heavy traces of psych funk and even includes a plethora of delicious, drone-like qualities… CHEW could end up being a band everyone will be talking about in coffeeshops and message boards by the end of the year”

-Do Savannah

“It’s been a hot minute since I’ve talked to a band who had their shit together.   ❤️‍ ❤️‍ “

-Matt Pham (Sluggo’s, Pensacola, FL)

“It’s over. You’re finished. You can’t possibly endure the power and fury of CHEW. Nope. No way. Riding a fiery wave of salubrious-rage-rock all the way from Atlanta, GA; these fuzzy-FFFreaks will cook you on a Sunday night and portion you out into tupper-ware for the work week. Like we said, you’re done.”

-Kaevan Tavakolinia, Münster Moon
